Text heard on Sample:
LUCREZIA
Beatrice! Speak! What has befallen?

BEATRICE
Oh, I am hurt - My eyes are full of blood.
I cannot see

LUCREZIA
Sweet child. You have no wound.
What ails you, Beatrice!

BEATRICE
How comes this hair undone? Oh, horrible!
The walls spin round... My God...

The beautiful blue heaven is flecked with blood
And storms engulf the earth:

Libretto by Martin Esslin after Shelley's verse drama 'The Cenci'
