Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ALCINA
Mi restano le lagrime;
direi dell'alma i voti,
ma i dei, resi ho implacabili,
e non m'ascolta il ciel.

Potessi in onda limpida
sottrarmi ai sole, ai dì:
potessi in sasso volgermi,
che finirei così
la pena mia crudel.

English Libretto or Translation:

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.
