Scena IV
Eduige e Garibaldo

Eduige
E tu dice d'amarmi? Hai core, hai brando,
e intanto odi, e sopporti
i miei scherni, i miei torti?

Garibaldo
Signora, in questo istante io volo
ad ubidirti, e la vendetta
col teschio del fellon...
(vuol partire)

Eduige
No, ferma! Aspetta:
a che pentito
vederlo a piedi miei,
Garibaldo, il vorrei più che punito.

Garibaldo
A me cosi faveli? E serbi ancora
amor per chi ti sprezza?

Eduige
No no, Duca, e tu credi
cosi vil questo core
che tornasse ad amar quel traditore?
Supplichevole in atto a me davante
chieda il perdono, e non l'ottenga mai.

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene IV
Edwig and Garibaldo

Edwig
And you do, say you love me?
And, yet, you have a he
art, you wear a sword,
have all the power that revenge could wish for,
yet tamely bear the wrongs, the slights, the
heart-aches, which hourly break my quiet?

Garibaldo
I’ll give thee instant proofs of prompt
obedience,
and glut thy vengeance with the traitors head.
(Offers to go)

Edwig
No, stop –
and you shall see him – this proud man,
bowed down to lowly ac
ts of supplication:
before me, on his bended knees, shall see him
beseech a pardon, but obtain it never.

Garibaldo
And think
you, you’ll be able to do this?
