Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ALCINA
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
But when you’ll come back,
With laces studding your feet,
You’ll find in me
rigour and cruelty.
And yet, as I loved you,
I still pity you,
You can still appease me,
my dear, my heart, don’t you wish it?
Leave me, treacherous and get away from me!
