Sinfonia
Nerone, amato, figlio!
Col saggio tuo consiglio
Per cosí grande impresa
La mia sorte fortunata
Or che Pallante è vinto
Volo pronto, e lieto il core
Quanto fa, quanto puote...L'alma mia fra le tempeste
Qual piacere a un cor pietoso...Prendi tu ancora, prendi...Ma rassembra tormentoso
Amici, al sen vi stringo
Voi, che dell'alta Roma...Il tuo figlio
Ma qual di liete trombe...Allegrezza, allegrezza!...Che sento!
Alle tue piante, o Augusta
Tu ben degno
L'ultima del gioir mèta gradita...Lusinghiera mia speranza
Vaghe perle, eletti fiori
Otton, Claudio, Nerone
E un foco quel d'amore
Ma qui Agrippina viene
Ho un non so nel cor
Cieli, quai strani casi...Fa quanto vuoi
Non veggo alcun
Pur ritorno a rimirarvi
Ma, oh ciel, mesta e confusa
Vieni, o cara
Che mai farò!...E quando mai i frutti...Pur al fin si riandò
Non ho cor che per amarti
Se Ottone m'ingannò...Se giunge un dispetto
Dunque noi siam traditi?
Coronato il crin d'alloro...Roma, più ch'il trionfo
Ecco il superbo
Di timpani e trombe
Nelle Britannia vinta...Cade il mondo soggiogato
Signor, quanto il mio core
Nulla sperar da me...E tu, Poppea...Tuo ben è 'l trono...Sotto il lauro ch'hai sul crine
Otton, qual portentoso fulmine
Voi che udite il mio lamento
Bella pur del mio diletto...Il tormento d'Ottone
Vaghe fonti...Ottone traditore!
Ti vo' giusta e non pietosa
Di quali ordite trame
Pur al fine ti ritrovo!
Col peso del tuo amor
Qual bramato piacere...Quando invita la donna l'amante
Pensieri, voi mi tormentate!
Se ben nemica sorte
Col raggio placido
Di giunger non dispero al mio desire
Spererò, poi che mel dice
Per dar la pace al core
Basta sol che tu chieda
Favorevol la sorte oggi m'arride...Ogni vento ch'al porto lo spinga
Il caro Ottone al precipizio io spinsi
Tacerò, tacerò
Attendo qui Nerone e Claudio ancora
Coll'ardor del tuo bel core
Amico ciel, seconda il mio disegno
Io di Roma il Giove sono
Pur al fin se ne andò
Pur ch'io ti stringa al sen
Piega pur del mio cor...Bel piacer
Cotanto osò Poppea?
Come nube che fugge dal vento
Evvi donna più empia?
Adorato mio sposo
Se vuoi pace, o volto amato
