Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Coro, Recitativo e Aria

Haly mette l'abito Turco a Taddeo, poi il turbante; indi Mustafà gli cinge la sciabola. Intanto i Turchi, con gran riverenza ed inchini, cantano il coro.

CORO DI EUNUCHI
Viva il grande Kaimakan,
Protettor de' Mussulman.
Colla forza dei leoni,
Coll'astuzia dei serpenti,
Generoso il ciel ti doni
Faccia franca e buoni denti.
Protettor de' Mussulman,
Viva il grande Kaimakan.

TADDEO
Kaimakan! Io non capisco niente.

MUSTAFÀ
Vuol dir Luogotenente.

TADDEO
E per i meriti
Della nostra nipote a quest'impiego
La vostra Signoria m'ha destinato?

MUSTAFÀ
Appunto, amico mio.

English Libretto or Translation:

Chorus, Recitative and Air

Haly puts the Turkish dress on Taddeo, then the turban; then Mustafa surrounds his saber. Meanwhile the Turks, with great reverence and bowing, sing the choir.

CHORUS OF EUNUCHI
Long live the great Kaimakan,
Protector of Mussulman.
With the strength of the lions,
With the cunning of snakes,
God is generous to you
Get away and good teeth.
Protettor de 'Mussulman,
Long live the great Kaimakan.

TADDEO
Kaimakan! I do not understand anything.

MUSTAFA
It means Lieutenant.

TADDEO
And for the merits
Of our niece to this job
Has your lordship destined me?

MUSTAFA
In fact, my friend.
