Aria Cleopatra

Piangerò la sorte mia,
sì crudele e tanto ria, finché vita in petto avrò. Ma poi morta d'ogn'intorno il tiranno e notte e giorno fatta spettro agiterò.

English Libretto or Translation:

Cleopatra air

I will cry my destiny,
so cruel and so much, as long as I live in my chest. But then the tyrant is dead all around, and night and day in the ghost, I will stir.
