The moon, depicted as a pale washer woman. Young and beautiful, one might equate her with a nymph that lures Pierrot deeper into his self-loss.

Conductor Jordan Randall Smith conducts Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire. Smith leads Ars Nova Dallas at the 2009 Dallas Festival of Modern Music.

Eine blasse Wäscherin A faded laundress
Wäscht zur Nachtzeit bleiche Tücher; Washes nighttime's pale clothes
Nackte, silberweiße Arme Naked, silver white arms
Streckt sie nieder in die Flut. She stretches down into the flood.

Durch die Lichtung schleichen Winde, Through the clearing creeping winds
Leis bewegen sie den Strom. Slightly agitate the stream.
Eine blasse Wäscherin A faded laundress
Wäscht zur Nachtzeit bleiche Tücher. Washes nighttime's pale clothes.

Und die sanfte Magd des Himmels, And the calm maid of the sky
Von den Zweigen zart umschmeichelt, By twigs tenderly flattered
Breitet auf die dunklen Wiesen Spreads across the dark meadows
ihre lichtgewobnen Linnen - Her light-woven linen--
Eine blasse Wäscherin. A faded laundress.
