Ulrica [ispirata]
Re dell'abisso, affrettati,
Precipita per l'etra -
Senza libar la folgore
Il tetto mio penètra.

Omai tre volte l'upupa
Dall'alto sospirò;
La salamandra ignivora
Tre volte sibilò...
E delle tombe il gemito
Tre volte a me parlò!
Scena VII
Riccardo da pescatore, avanzandosi tra la folla, nè scorgendo alcuno de' suoi.

English Libretto or Translation:

Ulrica [inspired]
King of the abyss, hurry up,
Precipita for the etra -
Without lightning the lightning
My penitra roof.

Three times the hoopoe
From above he sighed;
The ignominious salamander
Three times he hissed ...
And the moans of the tombs
Three times he spoke to me!
Scene VII
Richard as a fisherman, advancing through the crowd, or noticing any of his own.
