The English translation of the words to the Flower Duet from Act 1 of Leo Delibes' Lakme is: Under the thick dome of white jasmine With the roses entwined together On a river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning Come, let us go down together. Gently floating on it's charming risings Let us follow the river's current On the shining waves One hand reaches Reaches for the bank Where the spring sleeps And the birds, the birds sing. Under the thick dome of white jasmine Ah! Let us go down together! It's an enchanting piece...

The duet is between Santuzza and Turiddu - the opera is only about 1 hr long and this duet is about 12min long - this is from the "Turiddu, ascolta" section of the duet.
