DONNA ANNA
Ah, del padre in periglio
in soccorso voliam.

DON OTTAVIO
con ferro ignudo in mano
Tutto il mio sangue verserò, se bisogna.
Ma dov'è il scellerato?

DONNA ANNA
ln questo loco...
vede il cadavere.
ma qual mai s'offre, o Dei,
spettacolo funesto agli occhi miei!
II padre!... padre mio!...mio caro padre!...

English Libretto or Translation:

DONNA ANNA
Ah! My father's in danger,
Let us haste to his aid!

DON OCTAVIO
I will defend him with this sword,
With my lifeblood!
But where is the assassin?

DONNA ANNA
'Twas here I left him.
seeing the corpse
What is this I behold?
Can I believe my senses,
Ah, me unhappy!
My father, oh, my father, look upon me!
