Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ISABELLA
Cruda sorte! Amor tiranno!
Questo è il premio di mia fe'?
Non v'è orror, terror, nè affanno
Pari a quel ch'io provo in me.
Per te solo, o mio Lindoro,
Io mi trovo in tal periglio.
Da chi spero, o Dio, consiglio?
Chi conforto mi darà?

CORO
E' un boccon per Mustafà.

ISABELLA
Qua ci vuol disinvoltura,
Non più smanie, nè paura:
Di coraggio è tempo adesso,
Or chi sono si vedrà.
Già so per pratica
Qual sia l'effetto
D'un sguardo languido,
D'un sospiretto...
So a domar gli uomini
Come si fa.
Sian dolci o ruvidi,
Sian flemma o foco
Son tutti simili
a presso a poco...
Tutti la chiedono,
Tutti la bramano,
Da vaga femmina
Felicità.

English Libretto or Translation:

ISABELLA
Raw fate! Amor tyrant!
This is the prize of my fe '?
There is no horror, terror, or trouble
Like what I feel in me.
For you alone, or my Lindoro,
I find myself in that danger.
Who do I hope, O God, advice?
Who will comfort give me?

CHOIR
It's a boccon for Mustapha.

ISABELLA
Here it is easy,
No more smithering, nor fear:
Courage is time now,
Who will you see?
I already know for practice
What is the effect
With a languid look,
Of a sigh ...
I know how to dominate men
How you do it.
Sian sweet or rough,
Sian phlegm or fire
They are all similar
in next to ...
Everyone asks,
All the brahman,
From a vague female
Happiness.
