Russell Oberlin, male Alto. Vivi, tiranno, Bertarido's aria from Rodelinda, George Frideric Handel, 1725, Kings Theatre, Haymarket.

Viv,i tiranno,
Io t'ho scampato
svenami ingrato
sfoga il furor

Volli salvarti
sol per mostarti
ch'ho di mia sorte
piu grande il cor
(da capo)

Live, tyrant;
I have saved you.
Now kill me, ingrate;
Unleash your rage.

I wished to save you
Only to show you
That my heart is larger
Than my fate.
(return to the beginning)
