Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Tolomeo

Bella, placa lo sdegno!

Cornelia

Lasciami, iniquo re!

Achilla

Sire, qua mi portai,
per ammollir questa crudel, che adoro.


Tolomeo

Fu pietosa a' tuoi detti?

Achilla

Ella mi sprezza ognor, ed io mi moro.

Tolomeo
(da se'):

(Respiro, oh ciel!)
Bella, lo sdegno ammorza!
(tira da parte Achilla) Amico, e ben?

Achilla

Signor, oggi vedrai
Cesare estinto al suolo,
re vendicato, e regnator tu solo.


Tolomeo

Parti, eseguisci, e spera; avrai in mercede la tua crudel.
(da se'):
(Folle è costui se'l crede).

English Libretto or Translation:

Tolomeo

Beautiful, appease the anger!

Cornelia

Leave me, iniquitous king!

Achilla

Sire, here I took
to soothe this cruel, which I adore.

Tolomeo

Was it pious to your sayings?

Achilla

She despises me all, and I die.

Tolomeo
(by himself'):
(Breath, oh heaven!)
Bella, the indignation is strong! (pulls Achilla aside) Friend, and well?

Achilla

Sir, today you will see
Caesar extinct to the ground,
King avenged, and you alone regnator.

Tolomeo

Parts, perform, and hope; you will pay your cruel.
(by himself'):
(Folle is he if he believes).
