BRADAMANTE
Of the cugin?

MELISSO
Why?

OBERTO
He's my father. Since the shipwreck survived
the parent and I arrived there;
and the gracious Alcina generous received it,
indeed of honors he filled my parent.

MELISSO

It will be with others

OBERTO
The more I do not find it, it is my despairing.
She cries.

Who teaches my dear father?
Who makes me the parent,

Come in, furious, Oronte.

BRADAMANTE

Do you see me, Ruggier, tell me?

RUGGIERO
Your face of Ricciardo resembles.

BRADAMANTE
I am that,
Germano to your dear Bradamante.

RUGGIERO
My? no: you're wrong. I am Alcina lover.

MELISSO
Mr., you without the brando, and without a shield?

RUGGIERO
Servant to love, which goes without a warning and naked.

MELISSO
Nothing of your first fame?

BRADAMANTE
And faith, which my high germane

RUGGIERO

And my Alcina is not coming?
to Bradly and Melisso
You are troublesome.
in Bradamante
Say I laugh, simple fool.
to Melisso
Sieguo Cupido, I love a beautiful face,
I do not know how to miss out on fé.


Hastily part.

ORONTE
to Bradly
Here then you came of a woman
erratic to invade me with love?
Serious is the offense ...
pulling the sword
The brando sol la contesa resolves.

BRADAMANTE
What injury, what did you receive from us?


ORONTE
The sword says it.

MORGANA
entering hurriedly, to Bradamante
I am your defense, I ...
in Oronte
... your enemy.

BRADAMANTE
in Oronte
It's jealousy,
in Morgana
Force is of love,
in Oronte
ch'il sen t'affanna,
in Morgana
what do you feel at the core,
in Oronte
but this is still my sentence,
in Morgana
but despite the tiranna I feel in sen.
in Oronte
For a beautiful face,
that is taken away,
you sad gemi;
in Morgana
we disdain
and we all love
without mercy.

ORONTE
So I ...

MORGANA
Bold Oronte, in you returns, and reconstituted
now what I am, who you are. I want, and
I do not want to follow what I like;
can you possibly forbid me? Bold Oron!

ORONTE
The law of the oath?

MORGANA
The wind took her away quickly.

ORONTE
But darling, my diar?

MORGANA
Amar, and disamar quest is my desire.
Men I go, Oronte goodbye.


Part



Room, which looks to the Alcina apartments.
Ruggiero returns from the search.

RUGGIERO
I look for it in vain,
and the cruel one does not come back.

ORONTE
entering, to himself
New deception is found:
a jealous amator to the next one.
in Ruggiero
Listen, Ruggiero, listen: and believe in 'looks,
to the cheated fraud of your Alcina?


RUGGIERO
So does Oronte talk?

ORONTE
So. You alone do not know,
that close these woods
a thousand unhappy lovers, conversi on the air,
in cold cliffs, in beasts?

RUGGIERO
I know very well of quai lacci
for me he hugged her.

ORONTE
The lace is loose.

RUGGIERO
Me alone loves and desires.

ORONTE
Go, you are foolish;
Ricciardo is his idol.

RUGGIERO
Already of him are wasted?

ORONTE
He only loves:
and for him you can still be caught in a beast.

Semplicetto! do you believe?
If you see it,
that aims at you,
that sighs,
think and say:
could still deceive.

Oronte leaves. Enter Alcina.

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.

Alcina leaves. Enter Bradamante.

BRADAMANTE
in Ruggiero
If enemy were me, could you be worse off?


RUGGIERO
Rival you are me, hate me, Ricciardo.

BRADAMANTE
Do you hate the German beloved of your Bradamante?

RUGGIERO
And therefore I still hate you.

BRADAMANTE
Perfidious lover, do you thus disperse me?

RUGGIERO
Perhaps you love vaneggi?

BRADAMANTE
Unworthy lover!

RUGGIERO
What kind of favors? and to whom?

BRADAMANTE
Mirami, haughty:
Bradamante so speaks to Ruggiero.

Melisso goes unnoticed.

RUGGIERO
Bradamante favella? Bradamante
in this weapon? Regina, you're betrayed.

MELISSO
Eh! it's not that.

BRADAMANTE
Yes: it goes to your sorceress
to expose myself to wrath.

MELISSO
Ruggier, do not listen to it.

RUGGIERO
I know it raves.
in Bradamante
The mouth is vague,
that black eye,
I know, it's a business;
but he is still trusting;
who falls in love with you
it's not for you.

Go, you are foolish;
change your mind!
Like that face,
but give peace,
it's not for you.


Goes out.

MELISSO
in Bradamante
What a strange peril
your talking is waiting for you.

BRADAMANTE
In the other,
it is easy to give advice.


Melisso comes out. Morgana rushes in.


MORGANA
in Bradamante
Flee, my dear, hurry up!
To the jealous Ruggiero
granted the enchanted sorceress to the end
in beast of cangiarti.

BRADAMANTE
Go, find it again, and tell him
that Alcina does not desire, that she loves her
I would not know: that I burn on another face.

MORGANA
I fly; it's' mine.

BRADAMANTE
to himself
Give the deception to my great duel.

They come out in opposite directions. Back to Alcina.

ALCINA
Tyranny jealousy of the beloved Ruggier
torments the core,
and only for him is love for me.

Return me to vague,
you only want to love
this faithful soul,
my dear good.

I already gave you my heart;
I will trust my love;
I will never be cruel to you,
my dear spury.

Musette - Menuetto

RUGGIERO
Withholding you from those who love a moment,
dear lights, cruel you are!
I look for you, and you remove me
the happy, the hope of a look ...

Melisso enters in the form of Atlas, who had educated Ruggiero.

MELISSO
Be quiet, keep quiet, coward.
Remain my semblant,
and blush in revising Atlas.

RUGGIERO
Oh! of the first years my faithful educator.

MELISSO
Minds.

RUGGIERO
I embrace you.


He wants to hug him, but he is rejected.

MELISSO
Vanne lunge; I send you away,
springs, infamous Ruggiero.
So you correspond
to so many of mine for you suffered troubles?

RUGGIERO
Love ... duty ...

MELISSO
And then?

RUGGIERO
Courtesy of gentil ...

MELISSO
Follow.

RUGGIERO
Pity ...

MELISSO
Do you stop and get confused?
D'amor vile warrior:
is this the beautiful path of glory?

RUGGIERO
A fate ...

MELISSO
This in your finger now you place yourself, true gem,
and if you do not believe me anymore,
Mira, Ruggiero, and your infamy, see.

Not so soon Melisso gives Ruggiero the ring already of the great sorceress Angelica, that the whole hall changes in a hideous place, and desert.
Melisso in time resumes his first form.

RUGGIERO
What portento brings back to me
my mind to risk?
Atlas, where are you?

MELISSO
In that semblant, I took to free you.

RUGGIERO
Ah! Bradamante!

MELISSO
To you precisely sends me ...

RUGGIERO
Or vanne ad Alcina. Tell her,
that Ruggiero no longer loves it,
that 'My heart I betrayed,
and my fame.

MELISSO
Your disdain is dear to Bradamante.

RUGGIERO
Tell this, that I love it,
that I long for - and what to do?

MELISSO
Now cover all the weapons used;
but shut up with Alcina, and pretend
the first love, the first face.
Show hunting desio,
so escape and health to you.


Think of those who moan
of wounded love,
and always fears
abbbandonata,
cruel, from you.


Part.

BRADAMANTE
entering, to Ruggiero
What unfair hatred against me?

RUGGIERO
Forgive me, my reason won
charm of charm.
So far, I ventured; here I come back;
I break the unworthy lasso;
and if you rival me, your cruel destin
I cry, and I embrace you.

BRADAMANTE
And it's ver, do you resemble me?

RUGGIERO
Yes. Ah! were with you again,
my beloved bride, your sister.

BRADAMANTE
Ruggier, do not you know me?
and yet I am that.

RUGGIERO
Numi! is it ver? Bradamante!
But Bradamante! and how?
A new charm, yes,
that d'Alcina is this.
Go, insidious sorceress,
of my beloved woman you will lie
the form, and the speech.

BRADAMANTE
Crudel you disarm me, and yet I am that.

I would like to take revenge
of the perfidious cor,
love give me arms,
he gives me the furor.

You are barbarian, ungrateful,
ver who langue for you;
but take, ruthless,
if you want my blood too.


Part.

RUGGIERO
Who discovers to my thought,
if you are betrayed even though they are, or do you know the truth?

The sweet affection flatters me
with 'appearance
of my good.
Whom do you know? temer agrees,
that deceive me
still loving.
But if that ever was
that I adored,
and abandonment;
unfaithful, ungrateful I am,
they are cruel and traditor.



Place, which leads to the royal gardens, with Circe's statue in the middle, which changes
men at fairs.

Alcina, alone, invokes evil spirits.

ALCINA
The suspected stream, which torments, is acquitted

To you, daughter of the sun,
I bring my used pr ...

MORGANA

ALCINA
Importuna: you arrest me?

MORGANA
And your peace, with so much cruelty,
to buy must?

Enter Ruggiero.

ALCINA
in Ruggiero
Dear, he wants to satisfy you.

RUGGIERO
That's enough, Alcina, no more asks
my love.
I see such signs that Ricciardo does not love.
I am paying; and if he was my rival,
I forgive them.

MORGANA
in Ruggiero
He loves, sighs, but does not offend you.
in Alcina
D'amor comes on, but not for you.


Part.

ALCINA
in Ruggiero
I do not see happy in your face
of pria.
Say: what offends you?

RUGGIERO
An idle virtute takes me back.

ALCINA
Think of enjoying ...

RUGGIERO
Grant me, o queen, almen
that in my hotel, make war on fairs,
to revive my languishing spirit.

ALCINA
You always joined my mind at your will.
Vanne; but it's for a little while:
but think of my martyr.
I'm afraid; I leave you, and I sigh.

RUGGIERO
My beautiful darling,
I am faithful,
well, I love it,
to my idol
I promise fé,
to himself
but not to you.

Part.
Enter, sad, Oberto.

OBERTO
in Alcina
Reina: I'm looking for the beloved parent in vain!

ALCINA
Spera, Oberto, and is pleased.

OBERTO
Oh gods! I can not.

ALCINA
To my maternal love
so badly correspond?

OBERTO
I will always be grateful to you,
if you teach me the parent.

ALCINA
to himself
It makes me pietade;
or be flattered.
to Oberto
Listen; you will soon see your father,
I tel promise.

OBERTO
Start breathing the soul in your chest.


Between fear and fear
my heart throbs
I do not know well yet,
there is joy or sorrow.


Part.

ORONTE
entering, restless
Reina is betrayed.
With secret tips from evil guests
Your Ruggiero is quick to flee.

ALCINA
Numi! what do I mean, Oronte?
and this is true?

ORONTE
Unfortunately: and ...

ALCINA
Now I mean why the weapon was dressed;
crude, perjury!
I swear by him or revenge him.


Ah! my heart! mocked you're!
Stars! Gods!
Nume of love!
Traitor!
I love you so much;
you can leave me alone in tears,
oh gods! why?


But, what is moaning Alcina?
Son reina, it's still time:
remains or blackberry,
always pen, or come back to me.


Alcina leaves, while Morgana returns.

ORONTE
in Morgana
What are you saying, Morgana?
Your new lover
with treachery and deception,
t'abbandona; you know?

MORGANA
We believe, Oronte.
Jealousy motivates you:
but the more my affections for you are not.
I am free, nor do I ask you forgiveness.


He smiles, and gives him great reverence.

ORONTE
To the offense, the disdain reaches the ungrateful?
Up: courage, Oronte,
drive away the woman of the alma;
and if ever he returns regretted to riamarti,
disappointed his limbs with the istess'arti.

It's a fool, it's a love,
it is not his beauty,
that triumphs it does
superb of my heart.

Oronte party, Bradamante enters followed by Ruggiero.

OBERTO
And is it true that you tell me?

BRADAMANTE
Amato Oberto, of my cousin Astolfo,
your dear parent, soon the semblant
vedreai; and the wicked sorceress, who in lion lo
he changed, confused. Watch the secret.

OBERTO
Do not fear ...

BRADAMANTE
Tienti ready; now he is happy.

Oberto leaves.

RUGGIERO
kneeling
Here I am at your feet, a generous damsel,
double error makes me reo ...

BRADAMANTE
Scorgi, Ruggiero! we reserve for best use
you excuse me, I sue her. Here we go,
I always fear wherever I look at it,
see Alcina ria, which takes you away from me.

They hug each other.

RUGGIERO
Bradamante, my heart!

BRADAMANTE
Beloved Ruggiero, flee the infamous place.

Morgana, who has all heard on the sidelines, looks angry at them.


MORGANA
in Bradamante
Mentor, what do you want?
in Ruggiero
What do you think, ungrateful?
Alcina will give you right reward.
in Bradamante
Deceiving guest!
in Ruggiero
Uom without faith!


Angry part.

RUGGIERO
Green meadows, wildernesses,
you will lose the beauty.
Vaghi fior, currents rivi,
vagueness, beauty,
soon you will be born in you.
Pouring meadows, wildernesses,
you will lose the beauty.
And the vague object changed,
to the horror of the first aspect
everything in you will come back.



Subterranean room of the spells, with various figures and instruments, that belong to this use.

ALCINA
Ah! Ruggiero crudel, you did not love me!
Ah! that you pretended still, and I deceived you!
And yet you still adore my heart.
Ah! Ruggiero crudel! ah, traitor!

Of pale Acheron inhabitant spirits,
and of the night ministers of revenge,
blind cruel daughters, come to me!
Second my votes,
because Ruggiero loved
do not run away from me ungrateful.
Look around, suspended.
But oh! poor!
and what unusual delay?
eh! do not you hear me?
I look for you, and do you listen?
I command you, and do not you?
Evoke deception? evvi fraud?
Does my fatal rod have no power?
Won, disappointed Alcina, and who advances you?

Pale shadows, I know, you hear me;
around wrong,
and you hide,
deaf from me:
why? why?

My good escapes;
you stop him
deh! for pity,
if in this rod,
that scorn,
and I want to break up,
force is not.

Match Alcina vigorously throwing away the magic rod, and then manifesting different spirits, and ghosts, these form the dance.

Very bad meeting!

ALCINA
Alas! Ruggiero, is it true that you leave me?

ALCINA
And do not you think, my dear, to my pain?

My dear do you suffer?

RUGGIERO

ALCINA
For these sighs mine ...

RUGGIERO
Spit them in the wind.

ALCINA
I was always faithful to you ...

RUGGIERO
Forget the past.

ALCINA
I still adore you.

RUGGIERO
It is no longer time.

ALCINA
Ungrateful!

RUGGIERO
Glory calls me back.

ALCINA
It is a pretext.

RUGGIERO
The honor is stimulated.

ALCINA
It goes: you are very sorry for me: go, traitor!

But when you come back
of laces studded the foot,
wait for me

And yet, because you loved me,
I still have pity.
Even placar can you,

RUGGI ERO

BRADAMANTE

MELISSO
Human strength is not enough.
Get the Gorgoneo shield,
take the winged steed,
and lend it to me.

RUGGIERO
I'll leave from you, my good, alma molesta.

It is in the stony Iracana lair
disgruntled tiger, and uncertain slopes,
if he leaves, or waits
the cacciator.

From the strained strale
look at you want;
but then the offspring
leave in the wild.
Freme and the axle
desio of blood,
pity of the son;
then he wins love.


He leaves quickly.

MELISSO
in Bradamante
Vanne still with you;
where the sea lies,
and it's the ascetic ship,
I look forward to you.

BRADAMANTE
I will not leave, if first,
dissolved every infamous enchantment,
I do not give back to those who are without life.
Melisso part.
Love is soothed to the faithful love

No force stops him.
Ruggiero won.

ALCINA
Alas! treacherous stars!
But my guerriers?


ORONTE

ALCINA
And my monsters?

ORONTE
Son vanquished.

ALCINA
And that ingrate therefore escaped?

ORONTE
No; the island threatens.
below, while part
It makes love to her just reward;
of many, who left behind miserable lovers,
go to his pain all their tears.

ALCINA
My tears remain;
I would say of the alma the votes,
but the gods, rendered I implacable,
and I do not hear the heavens.

I could be on the clear wave
get away from the sun, the day:
you could stone me,
that I would end up like this
my cruel punishment.

A glorious offspring
The flight will be drizzar.

OBERTO
Already close is' the moment
to change my duol all in content;

Alcina, who was aloof to listen, now presents herself to Oberto; holds a dart in his hand.

ALCINA
How do you know it?

OBERTO
it is confused in answering
Because the destin ... the cries ... the duty ...

ALCINA
Do you get confused?

OBERTO

High Queen, I know well;
Alcina promised it.

ALCINA
to himself
Ah! that he still thinks of my damage.
Ungrateful! or you will try the extreme worries.

Alcina turns towards the seraglio of the fairs, and murmuring a few words, a lion goes on
gentle towards Oberto, when Alcina gives his dart to the same, telling him:
Take my dart, Oberto,
and defend yourself from that fair.

The lion is caught near Oberto, and he is licking his feet.

OBERTO
Eh! show me friend.

ALCINA
Do not trust yourself: kill it.

OBERTO
Ah! I have no core.

ALCINA
Obey the command.

Ah! that I well recognize the parent.

ALCI NA
Give me the dart; I whole-heartedly.

OBERTO

ALCINA
And I will do it.

BRADAMANTE
