sotto voce
Ecco l'infido.

MELISSO
sotto voce
Taci.
avanzando verso Alcina
Alta Reina, con Ricciardo guerriero,
Melisso a' piedi tuoi umil s'inchina.

ALCINA
Fu vostra sorte, amici,
al mio regno approdar.

MELISSO
Diam lode al cielo.
Ti preghiam che pietosa, sin che 'I mar
sia placato, ne permetti a restar.

English Libretto or Translation:

BRADAMANTE
whisper
Here is the treacherous.

MELISSO
whisper
Shut up.
moving towards Alcina
Alta Reina, with Ricciardo warrior,
Melisso at your feet humil bows.

ALCINA
It was your fate, friends,
to my kingdom to land.

MELISSO
Diam praise to the sky.
We pray to you that pitiful, as long as I mar
be quieted, allow it to remain.
