Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

PUBLIO
Sesto!

SESTO
Che chieldi?

PUBLIO
La tua spada.

SESTO
E perche?

PUBLIO
Vieni.

VITELLIA
(Oh colpo fatale!)

SESTO
(dà  la spada)
Al fin, tiranna...

PUBLIO
Sesto, partir conviene. E gia raccolto
per udirti il senato; e non poss'io
differir di condurti.

SESTO
Ingrata, addio!

English Libretto or Translation:

PUBLIUS
Sextus!

SEXTUS
What do you want?

PUBLIUS
Your sword.

SEXTUS
And why?

PUBLIUS
The one who, clad in regal attire,
fell wounded to the ground before your eyes,
and whom, misled by his appearance,
you took for Titus,
was Lentulus; the blow
did not deprive him of life. The rest you know.
Come.

VITELLIA
(O fatal blow!)

SEXTUS
surrendering his sword
So at last, tyrant …

PUBLIUS
Sextus, we must go. The Senate
is already assembled to hear you,
and I cannot delay conducting you there.

SEXTUS
Farewell, ungrateful woman
