Libretto[edit]

Va, dal furor portata,
Palesa il tradimento;
Ma ti sovvenga ingrata,
Il traditor qual'è.

Scopri la frode ordita,
Ma pensa in quel momento,
Ch'io ti donai la vita,
Che tu la togli a me.

Go, transported by fury,
reveal the treachery;
but remember, ingrate,
who is the traitor.

Disclose the deception that was planned;
but at the moment consider
that I gave you life
and you take it from me.
