Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ALCINA
Va: m'oltraggiasti assai: va, traditore!

Ma quando tornerai
di lacci avvinto il piè,
attendi pur da me
rigore e crudeltà.
E pur, perché t'amai,
ho ancor dite pietà.
Ancor placar mi puoi,
mio ben, cor mio; non vuoi?
Mi lascia, infido, e va!

English Libretto or Translation:

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

But when you come back
of laces studded the foot,
wait for me
rigor and cruelty.
And yet, because you loved me,
I still have pity.
Even placar can you,
my good, my heart; You do not want?
He leaves me, treacherous, and goes!
