Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Sesto

T'arresta, o genitrice! a me, oh tiranno!

Tolomeo
(snuda il ferro)

Io son tradito, oh Numi!

Sesto

Sappi, perfido mostro, e per tua pena: Salvo i Numi serbar' dai tradimenti Cesare invitto, e Cleopatra ei sciolse dall'ingiuste catene; ei qui sen' viene; io lo precorro, e questo

chiede quel sangue ch'è dovuto a Sesto.

Tolomeo

Del folle ardir ti pentirai ben presto.

(Si battono, e Tolomeo vien ferito, e cade morto in scena)

Cornelia

Or ti riconosco,
figlio del gran Pompeo, e al sen ti stringo.


Sesto
(guardando nella scena)

Giace il tiranno estinto;
or padre sì, tu benché vinto, hai vinto.
(parte)

English Libretto or Translation:

Sesto

Stop you, or parent! to me, oh tyrant!

Tolomeo
(snuda the iron)
I am betrayed, oh gods!

Sesto

Know, wicked monster, and for your pain: Except for the Nums he serbarized from the betrayals Caesar invaded, and Cleopatra and loosed from the enchanted chains; and here he comes; I run it, and this

he asks for the blood that is due to Sesto.

Tolomeo

You will soon regret the madness of burning.

(They fight, and Tolomeo is wounded, and falls dead on stage)

Cornelia

I recognize you,
son of the great Pompey, and to the sen I hold you.

Sesto
(looking in the scene)
The extinct tyrant is lying;
Yes, father yes, although you have won, you have won. (part)
