Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Recitativo: Orlando
È questa la mercede, Angelica spietata!
Del mio amor, di mia fede?
Ah, non vi gioverà da me fuggire,
che sino d'Acheronte sulla strada vi giungerà il mio sdegno,
e la mia spada!

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitativo: Orlando
So this is your gratitude, spiteful Angelica!
For my love, and my faithfulness?
You shall not escape me now,
To the banks of Acheron my vengeance and my sword will
pursue you!
