Scena X
Bertarido ed Unulfo

Bertarido
Unulfo oh Dio! Qella è costanza?
E vivo?
misero! e quella è fede?
Alle prime minaccie, al primo assalto
ella si rende, e cede?

Unulfo
Converrà farle noto,
signor, che vivo sei.

Bertarido
No, no.

Unulfo
Dunque vuoi tu...?

Bertarido
No, che costanza in lei
è allor necessita, non è virtù.

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene X
Bertarido and Unulfo


Bertarido
O my Unulfo, is this constancy?
And do I live, unhappy me?
Is this the boasted faith?
To the first menaces, the very first,
She yielded forwardly,
surrender`d almost e`re the assault was made.

Unulfo
I’ll see and let her know, my lord,
you still are living.

Bertarido
By no means that – that shall not be

Unulfo
And would you then –

Bertarido
It must not be – thus constancy in her
is mere necessity, and not a virtue:
