Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

JAGO
a Cassio indicando il fazzoletto
Questa č una ragna
dove il tuo cuor
casca, si lagna,
s'impiglia e muor.
Troppo l'ammiri,
troppo la guardi;
bada ai deliri
vani e bugiardi.
Questa č una ragna, etc…

English Libretto or Translation:

IAGO (eyeing Cassio, indicating the handkerchief)
This is a spider’s web,
‘twill your heart catch,
in spite of complaining
‘twill trap and dispatch.
Too much you’re admiring,
too long you are eyeing,
beware of such transports
abortive and lying.
This is a spider’s web, etc.
