"Non lo diro' col labbro"
from Handel's Tolomeo

Premiered at the King's Theatre, London April 30, 1728 with Antonio Baldi (alto castrato) in the role of Alessandro (brother of Tolomeo)

Performed here by Romina Basso and Il Complesso Barocco under Alan Curtis

Text:

Non lo diro' col labbro
che tanto ardir non ha;
forse con le faville dell'avide pupille,
per dir come tuttárdo,
lo sguardo parlera'.

English Translation:

I will not say it with my lips
Which have not that courage;
Perhaps the sparks
Of my burning eyes,
Revealing my passion,
My glance will speak.
