Scena II
Grimoaldo e Garibaldo

Grimoaldo
Duca, vedesti mai più bel disprezzo?

Garibaldo
Io della tua non vidi, oh mio Signore,
sofferenza maggiore.

Grimoaldo
Temo irritarla;
la pace del mio seno
Eduige combatte, e Rodelinda;
questa con l' odio e quella con l'amore.

Garibaldo
L'una e l'altra domar puoi col rigore.

Grimoaldo
Come?

Garibaldo
Il noioso affetto disprezza d'Eduige;
e Rodelinda ti paventi e ti adori a suo dispetto.

Grimoaldo
Io non ho tanto core.

Garibaldo
A me l'impresa ne lascia,
e in breve spera
di vederla men fiera.

Grimoaldo
Ecco Eduige.

Garibaldo
Da lei comincia intanto
a porre in opra il mio consiglio.

Scena III
Eduige e detti

Eduige
E tanto
da che sei Re, sei divenuto altiero,
infido Grimoaldo?

Grimoaldo
Da che son Re, son divenuto infido
per esser giusto.
Tu l`ire accendesti
che per la morte pur di Gundeberto
il cielo aveà fra tuoi germani estinte.
Per te chiamate le nostr`armi, e spinte
fur contro a Bertarido; e per te il soglio
fu da me tolto a Rodelinda; amore,
che di lei m`invaghì, veder l`orrore
mi fe del tuo superbo ingiusto orgoglio.

Eduige
Ma di sposo la fe, che a me giurasti?

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene II
Grimaldo and Garibaldo

Grimaldo
Duke, did`st tho
u ever see a fairer scorner?

Garibaldo
I never saw, my Lord, one of a temper to
suffer more than you can.

Grimaldo
I tremble to offend her:
Edwig and Rodelinda both conspire
one hate exciting, and this other love
to raise a war of passions in my breast.

Garibaldo
A rigid conduct soon would tame them both
and mould them to the scope of your desires

Grimaldo
I pray thee how?

Garibaldo
Despise, contemn the troublesome affection
of nauseous Edwig – shew her, that you loath
her; then Rodelinda, in spite of her proud heart
will meet your eye with reverential fear.

Grimaldo
My heart is not strong enough for that hard
work.

Garibaldo
Then leave to me the execution of it,
and shortly hope to see her grown less haughty.

Grimaldo
See, Edwig comes.

Garibaldo
Therefore, begin with her:
begin and put my counsels on the trial.

Scene III
Edwig and the aforesaid

Edwig
Methinks, since, late, you’ve born the
sovereign sway,you are most haughty grown – false Grimoaldo!
