Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria: Orlando
Non fu già men forte Alcide
Benchè in sen d'Onfale bella spesso l'armi egli posò;

Nè men fiero il gran Pelide
Sotto spoglie di donzella d'Asia regni minacciò.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria: Orlando
Hercules was not weakened
When he laid his arms on the soft breast of Omphale;

Nor was Achille’s rage less fiery,
When he threatened Asia’s kingdoms disguised as a woman.
