Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MELISSO
Ora rivesti tutte pria l'arme usate;
ma taci con Alcina, e fingi
il primo amore, il primo volto.
Mostra desio di caccia,
così fuga e salute a te procaccia.


Pensa a chi geme
d'amor piagata,
e sempre teme
abbbandonata,
crudel, da te.

English Libretto or Translation:

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.
