Countertenor Franco Fagioli sings Scherza infida in grembo al drudo, an aria from the opera 'Ariodante' (HWV 33) composed by G. F.Handel. Premiered 8 Jan.1735 at Covent Garden. The role of Ariodante, a vassal prince, was originally sung by the mezzosoprano castrato Giovanni Carestini.

 

Scherza infida in grembo al drudo
Io tradito a morte in braccio
Per tua colpa ora men vo.
Ma a spezzar l'indegno laccio,
Ombra mesta, e spirto ignudo,
Per tua pena io tornero.

Io t'abbraccio

Io t'abbraccio from Rodelinda, regina de' Longobardi, opera seria by George Frideric Handel, that premiered at the King's Theatre in the Haymarket in London on 13 February 1725, at the height of his career.  
This duet is sung between Rodelinda, Queen of Lombardy and Bertarido, the usurped King; the role of a king was originally sung by alto castrato while today it is sang by countertenors.

A dispetto d'un volto ingrato
più sdegnato già s'agita il cor.

 

E nel petto ai tumulti dell’alma
può dar calma il mio solo furor.


A dispetto d'un volto ingrato, ecc
