Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ALCINA
Tiranna gelosia dell'amato Ruggier
tormenta il core,
e pur solo per lui mi strugge amore.

Tornami a vagheggiar,
te solo vuoi amar
quest'anima fedel,
caro mio bene.

Già ti donai il mio cor;
fido sarà il mio amor;
mai ti sarò crudel,
cara mia speme.

English Libretto or Translation:

ALCINA
Tyranny jealousy of the beloved Ruggier
torments the core,
and only for him is love for me.

Return me to vague,
you only want to love
this faithful soul,
my dear good.

I already gave you my heart;
I will trust my love;
I will never be cruel to you,
my dear spury.
