THE DOCKS Lyrics


by . From Aida (complete libretto).


A small boat floats at the water's edge. It is tied to the dock by a heavy
rope. AIDA enters, wearing RADAMES' amulet around her neck. MEREB enters
with AMONASRO.

MEREB
Princess, we must hurry. They've sounded the alarm.

(AMONASRO climbs into the boat as RADAMES appears.)

AIDA
Radames!

AMONASRO
Aida! Undo the rope.

AIDA
Forgive me Father, but I need one last moment with him.

AMONASRO
Daughter!

(She leaps out of the boat and runs to RADAMES. He puts it together.)

RADAMES
Of course, you're the Nubian Princess. And you had me marry Amneris just so
your king could escape. What a fool I am. It was all a lie. An act. Every
word. Every kiss.

AIDA
No! But I have made too many mistakes and too many people have suffered. I
could not act selfishly now.

RADAMES
So you lied to me?

AIDA
Not when I said I love you. Say you believe me.

(As RADAMES struggles to find the answer, ZOSER appears on the rise.)

ZOSER
(Shocked to see AIDA. To one of the GUARDS.)
She's alive?

(MEREB rushes forward. He stands in front of ZOSER, brandishing a sword.)

MEREB
Stop there!

(MEREB and GUARD fight! MEREB cuts down the GUARD.)

AMONASRO
Aida, come!

RADAMES
Aida, get in the boat! This is your last chance.

(ZOSER pulls his sword and cuts MEREB down.)

AIDA
MEREB!

(AIDA pulls away from RADAMES and runs to MEREB. RADAMES takes MEREB'S sword
and lifts it high above the rope that secures the boat.)

ZOSER
Radames! For the love of Egypt stop them!
(RADAMES brings his sword down on the rope...severing it.)
NOOOOO!

AMONASRO
AIDA!

(The boat is swept away.)

ZOSER
Radames! What have you done?

RADAMES
It's all over, Father. When they come for me, they'll take you away too.

ZOSER
No - that can't happen - Egypt needs me -

RADAMES
You're the one who tied our fates together. Like father, like son. I think
you should run.

(ZOSER exits.)

AIDA
Radames. He's...

MEREB
Forgive me, Princess. I failed you.

AIDA
No...never! You, Mereb, inspired me.

MEREB
I wanted to go back to Nubia. Aida, take me home.

(AIDA holds MEREB as he dies. RADAMES moves forward and lifts AIDA into his
arms as the guards surround them.)
