Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


SPIRITO I
Torn'a l'ombre di morte,
Infelice Euridice,
Ne più sperar di riveder le stelle,
Ch'omai fia sordo a prieghi tuoi l'Inferno.

ORFEO
Dove ten vai, mia vita? Ecco, io ti seguo,
Ma chi me 'I niega, oimè? Sogno o vaneggio?
Qual occulto poter di questi orrori,
Da questi amati orrori
Mal mio grado mi tragge e mi conduce
A l'odiosa luce?

English Libretto or Translation:

FIRST SPIRIT
Return to the shadows of death,
unhappy Eurydice,
and hope no more to see the stars again,
for henceforth Hades is deaf to your prayers.

ORPHEUS
Where are you going, my life? See I follow you!
But who prevents me, alas? Am I dreaming or delirious?
What occult power among these horrors
drags me against my will
from these horrors I love and leads me
to the hateful light?
