Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

RUGGIERO
Partir da te, mio ben, alma molesta.

Sta nell'Ircana pietrosa tana
tigre sdegnosa, e incerta pende,
se parte, o attende
il cacciator.

Dal teso strale
guardar si vuole;
ma poi la prole
lascia in periglio.
Freme e l'assale
desio di sangue,
pietà del figlio;
poi vince amor.

English Libretto or Translation:

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.
