Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Accompagnato and Recitativo: Zoroastro
Gieroglifici eterni, che in zifre luminose ognor splendete,
ah! che alla mente umana altro che belle oscurità non siete!

Pur il mio spirto audace crede veder scritto là su in le stelle,
che Orlando, eroe e sagace, non fia sempre rubelle.
Ecco, sen vien, su, miei consigli, all'opra!

English Libretto or Translation:

Accompagnato and Recitativo: Zoroastro
Eternal symbols, that shine in radiant light,
You are nothing but a mysterious beauty to mortal minds!

I can now see, written in the stars,
That Orlando, the great hero, will not rebel against his destiny forever.
Here he comes now – to work, my counsels!
