Una vela! Una vela!
Esultate!
Roderigo, ebben che pensi?
Fuoco di gioia!
Roderigo, beviam!
Inaffia l'ugola! Trinca, tracanna (Brindisi)
Capitano, v'attende la fazione ai baluardi
"Abbasso le spade!"
Già nella notte densa...Venga la morte
Non ti crucciar
Vanne! la tua meta già vedo
Credo in un Dio crudel
Ciò m'accora
Dove guardi splendono
D'un uom che geme sotto il tuo disdegno
Se inconscia, contro te, sposo, ho peccato
Desdemona rea!
Tu?! Indietro! fuggi!
Ora e per sempre addio
Pace, signor
Era la notte, Cassio dormia
Oh! mostruosa colpa!...Ah! mille vite
Si, pel ciel marmoreo giuro!
La vedetta del porto
Continua
Dio ti giocondi, o sposo
Esterrefatta fisso
Dio! mi potevi scagliar
Cassio è là!
Vieni; l'aula è deserta
"...e intanto, giacchè non si stanca mai"
Quest'è il segnale
Il Doge ed il Senato salutano
Messeri! Il Doge
"A terra!...si...nel livido fango"
Quell' innocente un fremito
Fuggite!
Era più calmo?
Mia madre aveva una povera ancella
"Piangea cantando nell'erma landa..."
"Ave Maria, piena di grazia"
(Otello compare)
Diceste questa sera le vostre preci?
"Aprite! Aprite!"
Niun mi tema
