Libretto:

To battle, to battle!
Unsheathe your swords, brethren,
Let the foe know how we die!

Our city already burns,
Embers are already reaching us:
Their roar resounds,
Their rage is rampant!

Our chests flare up as that fire,
The roar is silenced by the rattling of our swords!

As brethren would kiss one another,
All of you kiss Zrinjski!
Follow him to the gates,
Trustful heroes!

Now, brethren!
Load the rifles, pistols,
Our thunders, our bang,
Let them roar, topple, harry!
Let us grind our fierce swords,
Make them cut harder, harder!
Load the rifles, pistols,
Our thunders, our bang,
Let them roar, topple, harry!

Goodbye and be well,
Our home of old,
Oh, good bye,
From everywhere
The grim foe comes
Already they plan
To bury your sacred body,
But they won't!
All your sons move to the fight for you!
Our home, you will stand forever!

Into the fight, to the fight!
For the home, for the home now to the fight!
Even if the infernal might
Raises its knife at it;
To the fight!
We are few, but courageous!
Who, who will bring him down?
Death to the devil, death!

For the home, to the fight, for the home, to the fight

To die for your homeland - such a delight!

Against the foe! They must fall!

From the opera 'Nikola Šubić Zrinjski'.
The opera round the world: http://www.croatianhistory.net/etf/ub...

The opera in short:

The opera is on Nikola Šubić Zrinjski's (or Zrínyi Miklós) death, who was one of the foremost Croatian nobles.
Zrinjski and his army (ca 2 000) defend Hungarian town Siget (or Szigetvár) against Turks (ca 100 000).
Turkish leader Suleiman the Great dies, but his death is kept in secret by his officers (to maintain order).
Zrinjski realises that there is no chance to achieve victory; therefore, he puts on his ceremonial gear, burns all the treasure and rides into honourable death.
The fortress burns.

Po činovima:

I. ČIN
Prva slika
Turski sultan Sulejman pod Beogradom je okupio svoju moćnu vojsku u nakani da pođe u pohod i osvoji Beč. Prije tog pohoda, međutim, želi zauzeti sigetsku utvrdu i zarobiti junačkog hrvatskog bana Nikolu Šubića Zrinjskog.
Druga slika
U Sigetu. Glasnici najavljuju dolazak Turaka. Jelena, kćerka Zrinjskog, rastaje se sa svojim zaručnikom Juranićem koji s ostalim banovim vojnicima mora poći u boj. Banova je želja skloniti ženu i kćerku na sigurno mjesto, no one odlučuju ostati i zajedno sa svim junacima dočekaju tursku navalu.
Treća slika
Nadmećući se međusobno u bojim igrama, sigetski junaci slave jednu od svojih pobjeda nad Turcima koji opsjedaju grad. Cjelokupna banova vojna posada zaklinje se na vjernost, čvrsta i nepokolebljiva u svojoj odluci da grad brani do posljednje kapi krvi. II. ČIN
Četvrta slika
Turci su puni pouzdanja i sigurni u svoju pobjedu, te se zabavljaju gledajući plesove haremskih žena. U međuvremenu Sulejman velikog vezira Sokolovića šalje k Zrinjskom kako bi ga nagovorio na predaju grada, te mu obećava da će ga zauzvrat promaknuti i učiniti hrvatskim kraljem.
Peta slika
Dolazi Mehmed Sokolović i javlja banu sultanovu poruku. Zrinjski okuplja svoje junake, te svi zajedno odbiju Sulejmanov zahtjev i ponudu. Tko se želi domoći ključeva utvrđena grada, mora ih osvojiti u borbi. Velikome veziru na očigled, daje zapaliti vanjski dio Sigeta. III. ČIN
Šesta slika
Sultan je bolestan i umire ne dočekavši pad Sigeta, no Sokolović zataji tu vijest da vojska ne bi izgubila pouzdanje i klonula duhom, te nakon što je svu vlast prigrabio u svoje ruke zapovijeda odlučan i žestok juriš na grad.
Sedma slika
Eva i Jelena sklonile se u podzemlje utvrde gdje Jelena sniva o svojoj svadbi s Juranićem. Dolazi Juranić i ubija na njezinu zamolbu zaručnicu kako ne bi pala u tursko ropstvo.
Osma slika
U Sigetu. Svi junaci predvođeni Zrinjskim i Evom, spremni su poginuti. Otvaraju vrata grada i jurišaju među tursku vojsku. Opera završava apoteozom junaštva i pobjede, najvećom žrtvom.
