Italian text

Lurcanio

Dite spera, e son contente,
dolci labbra del mio ben.
 

Dalinda

Spera, spera, io già mi pento,
novo ardor mi accende il sen.
 

Lurcanio

Dunque amasti? Oh Dio, che sento!
ed amasti?
 

Dalinda

Un traditor.
 

Lurcanio

Ami ancor?
 

Dalinda

Io già mi pento
che si male amai sin or.
