Non, je ne verrai pas, Cassandre's aria from Les Troyens

Non, je ne verrai pas la déplorable fête
Où s'envire, en espoir d'un brillant avenir,
Ce peuple condamné, que rien, hélas, n'arrête
Sur la pente du gouffre.
O cruel souvenir!
Gloire de la patrie!
Et voir s'évanouir
Du bonheur le plus pur la séduisante image!

O Chorèbe! ô Priam!
Vains efforts de courage,
Des pleurs d'angoisse inondent mon visage!
