英語版オペラ『オネーギン』歌詞 - 第1幕 第1場

 こんにちは、茅野です。

今回は、ほぼ自分用に、英語歌唱版のオペラ『エヴゲーニー・オネーギン』の歌詞を打ち出していこうとおもいます。

リブレットから手動で打ち出しているので、多分タイピングミスが結構あるとおもいます。すみません。何か見つけたら教えて下さい。

 基本的に自分用ですが、なにかお役に立てていれば幸い。それでは宜しくお願いします。

 

No. 1 Duet and Quartet

Tatiana and Olga

"Oh, did you hear the lovesisk shepherd boy

who sings of woe and sadness never-ending?

The morning silence with him softly blending,

as he pours out his plaintive song of love.

Oh, did you hear the shepherd boy

as he pours out his silent love?

Within the grove each day

the shepherd sings his plaintive song of love.

Oh, did you hear at break of day the shepherd boy

who sings of love?"

 

Madame Larina

I know that song and I remember

how in those long-forgotten days

when I was young, I also sang it.

 

Filippievna

Ah, that was many years ago.

 

Tatiana and Olga

"And did you sigh to thear its melody,

his song of love and sadness never-ending,

and see his grief, all other grief transcending,

as in distress he vowed that he would die?"

And did you sigh to hear him vow that he would die?

In his distress the shepherd boy

looked down and vowed that he would die.

 

Madame Larina

How I adored those English novels!

 

Filippievna

Yes, that was many years ago.

 

Madame Larina

Not that I read them for myself.

No, it was just because my cousin -

Princesse Aline who lived in Mosvow -

would talk of Richardson all day.

Ah, Grandison! Ah, Richardson!

 

Filippievna

Yes, I remember.

You'd only just become engaged!

But I knew it wasn't a love-match!

For you had se your heart on someone

more remantically inclined, and dreamt you might elope together.

 

Madame Larina

Ah, so I had! Ah, so I had!

He took my heart away, that dashing ensign in the Guards!

 

Filippievna

All that seems many years ago.

 

Madame Larina 

I was so elegant in those days...

 

Filippievna

Yes, you looked lovely...

 

Madame Larina

... And wore each fachion à la mode.

 

Filippievna 

... And wore each fashion of the day.

 

Madame Larina

But father chose a husband for me.

 

Filippievna

Then you were married straght away;

no wonder you were so unhappy.

But soon you said goodby to Moscow;

your noble master brought you here, and when your household duties started you grew contented.

 

Madame Larina

At first I woke each morning crying, and even longed to run away.

But householf duties soon began and gradually I grew contented.

 

Madame Larina and Filippievna

God sends us habit from abode in place of happiness and love.

The proverb's true!

 

Madame Larina 

And so romance, Princess Aline,

and books of sentimental verse erte all forgotten.

 

Filippievna

And you soon preferred to dress in something simpler;

instead of crinoline and wrap...

 

Madame Larina and Filippievna

Ah! I/You wear a quilted gown and cap.

God sends us habit from adove in place of happiness and love.

The proverb's true!

 

Madame Larina

And yet my husband loved me blindly and always treated me so kindly.

 

Filippievna

And yet the master loved you blindly and always treated you so kindly.

 

Madame Larina

Yes, God is good, he knows what's best, and all who trust in him surely will find rest.

 

No. 2 Chorus and Dance of the Peasants

Leader

My legs ache and can no longer run, now the day is done.

 

Peasants

My poor legs are aching and cannot run.

 

Leader

My hands both are sore from binding corn since the break of morn.

 

Peasants

My sore hands are aching from binding corn.

My heart is grieving from bitter sorrow and neber-ending care;

my spirit is sore for I'll see my love no more.

 

My legs ache and can no longer run, now the day is done.

My poor legs are aching and cannot run.

My hands both are sore from binding corn since the break of morn.

 

Health and wealth to your ladyship, years of plenty and fellowship!

Doubtless you know why we come to you bearing a sheaf as we always do;

harvest is finished at last!

 

Madame Larina

Thank you, good people, I'm delighted.

You're welcome here.

Let's celebrate the harvest with a song!

 

Peasants

Why, that's a pleasure ma'am.

Sing for her ladyship, and take your places, dancers.

Come on now, are you ready?

 

In a cottage by the water lived a miller with his daughter.

Fa la la la,

lived a miller with his daughter.

 

Came a farmer on the ferry,

rich and ruddy as a cherry.

Fa la la la,

ruch and ryuddy as a cherry.

 

Saw the miller's pretty daughter,

started then and there to court her.

Fa la la la,

started then and there to court her.

 

Thought he'd manage to persuade her if he came to serenade her.

Fa la la la,

if he came to serenade her.

 

"Won't you listen to my pleading?

I'm a genteleman of breeding."

Fa, la la la,

"I'm a gentleman of breeding."

 

"You have said the same to Sasha;

broke your promise to Parasha!"

Fa la la la,

"broke your promies to Parasha!"

 

"Don't believe that harridan Parasha,

when I see her next I swear I'll thrash her!"

Don't believe Parasha,

sho's been gossiping with Masha;

if we meet again I'll thrash her!"

 

But the miller's pretty daughter 

shouted back across the water,

Fa la la la,

shouted back across the water.

 

"Thought you've got your fascination,

I must keep my reputation, 

so I'll be at your disposal

when you make me a proposal!"

 

Fa la la la !

 

No.3 Scene and Aria

Tatiana 

Oh, how I love to hear the people singing,

for music makes me lose myself in endless dreaming and yearning far away.

 

Olga 

Ah, Tanya, Tanya, you fream the whole day long!

I'm not like you at all; when I hear songs they always set me dancing.

"In a cottage by the water lived a miller with his daughter."

 

I'm not the sort to sit in silence, 

at night I never stay awake 

and mwatch the moonkight at my window,

or sight and sigh and sigh

as if my hear would break!

 

So why be sad? Behave as I do

and lead a life that's always gay;

for when you're cheeful and fond of laughter

the heart grows younger every day.

Never give way to sorrow or despaire;

each morning calls anew to pleasure!

My love of life is past all measure,

that's why my heart is free from care!

 

No. 4 Scene

Madame Larina

Come here, my darling Olga!

I love to see you happy and contented.

You'd really like to spend the whole day dancing, I'm sure of it!

 

Filippievna

Tanyusha, what's the matter?

Tell me, child; oerhaps you're feeling ill.

 

Tatiana

No, Nanny, please don't worry.

 

Madame Larina

Good people, let me thank you for your singing.

You must be thirsty now.

Filippievna, arrange for wine before they leave.

My friends, God bless you!

 

Peasants

Goodbye, and thank you, ma'am!

 

Olga

Oh, mother, what's the matter with Tatiana?

 

Madame Larina

Dear, dear! Indeed, you look quite pale, my darling.

 

Tatiana

But no more than usual.

You're far too anxious, mother!

Can't you see I'm byst reading my novel?

 

Madame Larina 

Ah, clearly that's the reason!

 

Tatiana

It's such a moving tale of two young people;

they're both in love yet so unhappy,

and I'm sorry for them.

Oh, how they had to suffer!

 

Madame Larina

Tanya darling, when I was young, I, too,

would get upset from reading there romances.

They're all made up, my child!

As time went by I came to realise that in life there are no heroes or hiroines.

 

Olga 

You try to sound so worldly, but all the time forget you're in your apron!

Think what a sight you'd look if Lensky came!

 

Hush, there's a carriage coming!

Here he is!

 

Madame Larina 

He's very early!

 

Tatiana

He's not alone.

 

Madame Larina

Who can it be?

 

Filippievna

Your ladyship, he says it's Mister Lensky;

Mister Onegin's with him.

 

Tatiana

Oh, in that case I must go!

 

Madame Larina

What nonsense, Tanya! They'll be offended.

Heavens above! My cap is on all askew!

 

Olga

Why don't you ask them in?

 

Madame Larina

Invite them to come in!

 

No. 5 Scene and Quartet

Lensky

Medames, I hope that you'll excuse me,

I've brought a visitor. This is Onegin,

my neighbour and my friend.

 

Onegin

I'm greatly honoured.

 

Madame Larina

No, really, sir, it's we who are honored.

Be seated and meet my daughters.

 

Onegin

I find them charming, ma'am.

 

Madame Larina

Let's go inside to talk,

or, if you would preher it,

we could remain here in the garden.

I beg you, don't stand on ceremony;

we are neighbours, so do exactly as you please.

 

Lensky

I love it here! There's nowhere else that's wuite so peaceful

or secluded. It's just delightful!

 

Madame Larina

Stay here then!

But I must go indoors to see about the supper.

My girls will entertain you. A bientôt!

 

Onegin

Now tell me, which of them's Tatiana?

I'm really interested to know.

 

Lensky

The older one who's looking sad,

with eyes cast downwards so demurely.

 

Onegin 

I'm most surprised you've chosen Olga.

 

Lensky

And why?

 

Onegin

For I'd prefer the other

were I a poet just like you.

Your Olga's features have no life,

no special character or poetry.

I'll grant she has a pretty face,

but like the moon it lacks all grace;

yes, like the moon it's vacent and prosaic.

 

Lensky

Clearly there is a gulf betwwen us;

for prose and verse

or fire and water

aren't more unlike than you and I!

Ah, yes! There is a gulf between us;

for prose and verse

or fire and water

aren't more unlike than you and I!

...Are not more different then you and I!

 

Tatiana

Now, now at last my eyes are open,

my heart assures me it is he!

And now I know his precious image

will haunt me for the rest of life.

I'll dream each night of my beloved.

His coming has aroused within me

the magic feeling of desire,

and set my loving soulon fire.

His coming's filled we with desire,

and straightway set my soul on fire!

 

Olga

I always knews that when Onegin came here

his elegance and easy social grace

would make a deep impression.

The gossips will begin to talk

and make their scandalous conclusions.

Slylym they'll call him eligible

though also hint that he's depraved.

I knew that when Onegin came here 

his charm would make a deep impression.

The cillage gossips now will start to whisper

and link Tatiana's name with his.

The people here will start to gossip and whisper,

linking Tatiana's name with his.

 

No. 6 Scene and Arioso

Lensky

How perfect, how wonderful,

to be onve more together!

 

Olga

I thought we met here only yesterday.

 

Lensky

I know, but that is ages.

One whole day of separation - 

it seemed endless!

 

Olga

Endless! You make it sound so terrible!

Don't exaggerate!

 

Lensky

The word was strong, Olga,

even as my love for you!

 

Onegin

But tell me, though,

do you not find it rather boring

livint so cut off?

It's very quaint but somewhat rustic;

there's noghing here to offer you

distraction or give amusement.

 

Tatiana

Well, I'm fond of reading.

 

Onegin

Really! It's true tha books can give us pleasure;

I enjoy them also,

but even reading surely has its limits!

 

Tatiana

I daydream as I wander through the garden.

 

Onegin

What is it that you deam about?

 

Tatiana

My greatest joy is meditation,

and has been since I was a child.

 

Onegin

I see that you're incurably romantic;

I, too, once used to be the same.

 

Lensky

How I love you, I adore you, Olga,

with the hopeless longing of a poet's fervour,

as onky he is doomed to love!

My heart is ruled by one emotion,

for you're my goddess and my muse.

While still a boy my heart was captured;

your voice would haunt me night and day.

I watched your innocence, enraptured,

and heard you laughing at your play.

We lived not caring for the morrow,

sharing each childish koy and sorrow.

Ah!

How I worshiop you, how I worship you,

with the hopeless love known only to a poet!

You are all my inspiration,

you alone are all my gladness,

all my happiness and sadness!

How I love you, I adore you,

and there's no power on earth,

no time or distance that could keep us both apart,

or ever cool the ardour

of my pure desire,

for love has warmed it with eternal fire!

 

Olga 

Our days of childhood were serene

amid this quiet rural scene.

 

Lensky

For I worship you!

 

Olga 

Our parents watched us as we grew

and knew that I would marry you.

 

Lensky

Yes, I worship you and only you!

 

No. 7 Closing Scene

Madame Larina

Ah, here you are! But what's become of Tanya?

 

Filippievna

I saw her with your guest down by the lakeside.

I'll go at onve and call her.

 

Madame Larina

Yes, and say to her

she should be in by now. Our guests are hungry,

and soon it will be supper-time.

 

So meanwhile, let's go indoors.

 

Lensky

We'll follow you, ma'am.

 

Onegin

My uncle wrote that he was ailing

and so I called on him down here.

Thank Gof, he died a few weekd later

and earned my gratitude, I fear,

for he had left me quite a forture!

But, Lord above, I found it tedious

to sit beside him night and day,

just waiting till he passed away!

 

Filippievna

My ppor Tanyusha! She looks so timid,

her eyes cast meekly down, and never speaking.

How pale she's looking and how shy!

Can that young gentleman have caught my darling's fancy?

 

以上です!
