Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

RUGGIERO
Ah! infedele, infedel! Questo è l'amore?

ALCINA
Mio tesoro, mio ben, anim mia!
chiami Alcina infedele?

RUGGIERO
Sì, ché lo sei, crudele.
Va, Ricciardo t'attende;
egli a' tuoi prieghi qui volse il pié;
quivi per te dimora.

ALCINA
Alla costanza mia così favella
il tuo core crudele?
E pur ti son fedel,
e pur son quella.

Sì, son quella,
non più bella,
non più cara
agli occhi tuoi;
ma se amar
tu non mi vuoi,
infedel, deh! non mi odiar.

English Libretto or Translation:

RUGGIERO
Ah! unfaithful, infidel! This is Love?

ALCINA
My darling, my good, my soul!
do you call unfaithful Alcina?

RUGGIERO
Yes, because you are, cruel.
Go, Ricciardo awaits you;
he prayed to his prayers here;
here for you dwell.

ALCINA
To my constancy so favella
your cruel core?
And though I am loyal to you,
and yet I am that.

Yes, I'm that one,
no longer beautiful,
no longer dear
in your eyes;
but if you love
You do not want me,
infedel, deh! do not hate me.
