Bertarido
Tu morrai, traditor! Muori, rubello.
(incalzando Garibaldo nella scena)

Grimoaldo
Oh ciel! Soldati, o là!...chi mi difese?
Oh Dio! Chi mai fu quello?
Fu Bertarido?
(vengono le guardie)

Rodelinda
Si, fu Bertarido,
colui che tu svenasti, oh core indegno!
(Bertarido torna)

Bertarido
Grimoaldo ecco il ferro!
(getta la spada a piè di Grimoaldo)

Rodelinda
Oh ciel! Che miro?
Veglio? Sogno, o deliro?

Scene VIII
Grimoaldo, Garibaldo, Bertarido, afterwards
guards, and after them Rodelinda, leading
Flavio by the hand)


Bertarido
Traitor, `tis thou shalt die – away to death!
(Drives him off the stage)

Grimoaldo
O heav`ns! Guards! – Who was there!
Who was t`defend me! – Could it be?
Was it Bertarido –
(The guards come up)

Rodelinda
Yes, `tis Bertarido, that you have murdered
o most unworthy man!

Bertarido
(turning)
There, Grimoaldo, I restore thy sword,
(throws it at Grimoaldos feet)

Rodelinda
What vision’s this?
Or do I wake, or dream, or am I mad?
