Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ARRIGO
Suo carnefice fosti: e l'alma è rea
Se vacillar fra voi tanto potea!
Ombra diletta, che in ciel ripòsi
La forza rendimi che il cor perdé,
Su me i tuoi sguardi veglin pietosi,
E prega, o madre, prega per me!

MONFORTE
L'ardente prego del genitore
È nulla, Arrigo, nulla per te?
Apri il tuo seno, ch'io t'apro il core.
T'arrendi alfine, o figlio, a me!

Arrigo si toglie con impeto dalle braccia di Monforte che tenta ritenerlo, e fugge a sinistra. Monforte lo segue collo sguardo e con atto di dolore si allontana. La scena cambia e rappresenta una magnifica sala disposta per una festa da ballo.

English Libretto or Translation:

ARRIGO
His executioner was: and the alma is rea
If it was vacillating among you so much!
Shadow beloved, which in heaven I replied
The force make me that the corpse lost,
On me your compassionate veglin looks,
And pray, oh mother, pray for me!

MONFORTE
The ardent pray of the parent
Is it nothing, Arrigo, nothing for you?
Open your breasts, I open the core to you.
You surrender at last, son, to me!

Arrigo takes off vigorously from the arms of Monforte who tries to consider it, and flees to the left. Monforte follows him with his look and with an act of pain moves away. The scene changes and is a magnificent room set for a dance party.
