Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:


SCENA NONA
Ferrando solo; poi Guglielmo e Don Alfonso

Recitativo

FERRANDO
In qual fietro contrasto, in qual disordine
Di pensieri e di affetti io mi ritrovo?
Tanto insolito e novo è il caso mio,
Che non altri, non io
Basto per consigliarmi... Alfonso, Alfonso,
Quanto rider vorrai
Della mia stupidezza!
Ma mi vendicherò: saprò dal seno
Cancellar quell'iniqua... cancellarla?
Troppo, oddio, questo cor per lei mi parla.

English Libretto or Translation:


NINTH SCENE
Ferrando alone, later Don Alfonso and Gu glielmo talking in the background

Recitative

FERRANDO
In what fierce strife,
In what confusion
Of thoughts and affections I find myself!
So unusual and novel is my situation
That neither others nor I myself
Suffice to give me counsel ... oh, Alfonso,
How you must be laughing
At my stupidity!
But I'll be revenged, I'll banish
The traitress from my mind ...
Banish her?
O Heaven, too loudly my heart intercedes for her.
