Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Recitativo
Cleopatra
(sola)

Che sento? Oh dio! Morrà Cleopatra ancora. Anima vil, che parli mai? Deh taci!

Avrò, per vendicarmi,
in bellicosa parte,
di Bellona in sembianza un cor di Marte. Intanto, oh Numi, voi che il ciel reggete, difendete il mio bene!
Ch'egli è del seno mio conforto e speme.

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitative
Cleopatra
(alone)
What do I hear? Oh God! Morrà Cleopatra again. Soul vil, what are you talking about? Deh shut up!

I will have, to avenge myself,
in bellicose part,
of Bellona in the guise of a cor of Mars. Meanwhile, oh gods, you who are in heaven, defend my good!
That he is my comfort and my heart is of hope.
