Aria BERTARIDO
***********************
Vivi, tiranno!
Io t'ho scampato!
Svenami, ingrato,
sfoga il furor.

Volli salvarti
sol per mostarti
ch'ho di mia sorte
piu grande il cor
***********************
You live, tyrant,
I have saved you!
Now, in your ingratitude, kill me,
unleash your rage!

I wanted to spare your life
simply to prove to you
that destiny has bestowed on me
the nobler heart.
