Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Don Gasparo a cui don Alfonso fa cenno di uscire, s'inchina con rispetto e parte.

SCENA SECONDA
Alfonso solo.

ALFONSO
seguendo con lo sguardo Don Gasparo
Ma de' malvagi invan sul capo mio
sventure impreca invida rabbia, invano
contro il mio amor congiurano; di tutti
l'inique trame io scerno.
Per te, mia vita, affronterei l'averno.

Vien, Leonora, a' piedi tuoi
serto e soglio il cor ti pone.
Ah! se amare il re tu puoi,
mai del don si pentirà,
lo splendor delle corone
cede innanzi alla beltà.

De' nemici tuoi lo sdegno
disfidar saprò per te;
se a te cessi e l'alma e il regno,
io per gli altri ancor son re.

De' miei dì compagna io voglio
farti, o bella, innanzi al ciel,
al mio fianco unita in soglio,
al mio fianco nell'avel.
movendo incontro a Don Gasparo, che ritorna, e col quale s'intrattiene
Per la festa previen tutta mia corte.

English Libretto or Translation:

Don Gasparo to whom Don Alfonso beckons to go out, bowed with respect and part.

SECOND SCENE
Alfonso only.

ALFONSO
following Don Gasparo with his eyes
But of the wicked invaded on my head
misfortune curses envies anger, in vain
against my love they conspire; of all
the inique plots I scerno.
For you, my life, I would face the averno.

Come, Leonora, at your feet
serta and soglio il cor puts you.
Ah! if you love the king you can,
never of the don will repent,
the splendor of the crowns
it yields before the beauty.

The wrath of your enemies
to disfidar I will know for you;
if you cease and the alma and the kingdom,
for others I am still king.

I want my dear companion
make yourself, o beautiful, before the sky,
at my side united in soglio,
by my side in the avel.
moving to meet Don Gasparo, who returns, and with whom he enters
For the party, I anticipated my whole court.
