Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Scena IX
Bertarido , e Unulfo, nascosti; Garibaldo,
Grimoaldo, e guardie


Grimoaldo
E ben, Duca, poss'io
all'ardor del cor mio
sperar dall'opra tua qualche conforto?

Garibaldo
Sì, Rodelinda è tua.

Grimoaldo
Mi narri il vero?

Garibaldo
Tu sei felice, ed io, Signor, son morto.

Grimoaldo
Morto? Perché?

Garibaldo
S'ella racquista il regno,
giurò tutto il suo sdegno
scagliar contro di me.

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene IX
Bertarido and Unulfo, hidden. Garibaldo,
Grimoaldo and guards.


Grimoaldo
Well then, my Duke, and is there room for
hopes,
may I expect some comfort from your project?

Garibaldo
Oh yes, my Lord – fair Rodelinda`s yours.

Grimoaldo
Say, is it possible, what you now tell me?

Garibaldo
My Lord, `tis surely so – you are most happy,
But as for me, I’m a dead man – that’s certain.

Grimoaldo
What can this mean? Saidst thou not dead?

Garibaldo
If she regains the Kingdom, she has sworn
to hurl the bolt of vengeance at my head;
I’m to be made a victim.
