Vola talor dal carcere, Gulnara's aria from Il Corsaro

Nè sulla terra creatura 
Alcuna di me più sventurata!
M'ama Seid! io l'odio!
O vile musulman, tu non conosci,
Tu non comprendi ancora
Qual alma io chiuda in petto!
Per gemme ed oro
Non ne avrai l'affetto.

Vola talor dal carcere
Libero il pensier mio
Al sospirato e limpido
Aere del ciel del ciel natio:
Ivi rapita l'anima
Scorda le sue catene;
Oblia le antiche pene,
Spazia in un ciel d'amor.
