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

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

Sweet child. You have no wound.
What ails you, 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'
