Sinfonia
"Che burrasca! che tempesta!"
"S'è lecito, signora"
"Non s'innalza"
"Su via volgete, o bella"
"So che una bestia sei"
"Evviva allegramente"
"Non sparate...mi disdico..."
"Vanne, sciocco balordo; intendo"
"Io son, poverina"
"Ah che già sono ormai"
"Mira il campo all'intorno"
"A trionfar t'invita"
"Cara Lisetta, da qual gelida mano"
"Con un tenero sospiro"
"Ecco che siamo, o cara"
"Ah, che divenni stupida"
"Bel godere la campagna"
"Ah no, mio dolce amore"
"Che miro, Rosina?"
"Massima filosofica"
"Senti Masino..."
"Per pietà, vezzosi rai"
"Che destino crudel! dover soffrire"
"Va pettegola insolente" - "Ma che ingiustizia è que- sta!"
"Misera, chi m'aiuta"
"Dove fuggo, ove m'ascondo"
"Ah che perfida donna!"
"Già la morte in mante nero"
"Ed acciò non mi resti per colei"
"Ah, non m'inganno, è Orfeo"
"Or che torna il vago Aprile"
"Eccomi giunta al colmo"
"Care spiagge, selve, addio"
"Caro figlio, partiamo"
"Giro di qua, di là"
"Animo risoluto"
"Masino, deh, senti"
"Perfido, indegno"
"Ah, dov'è la mia Rosina?"
"Che stupore, che cosa impensata!"
"Già per l'aria a poco a poco"
"Che donna ingannatrice!"
"Rosina vezzosina"
"Si, mia cara"
"Ben che gema un'alma oppressa"
