Hello Beth1983:
I found the answer by doing the search on google: "Don givanni" and
"text" and I clicked on the second listing, "The Aria Database,"
Database search results.  I assume that this is a website that you can
locate whatever information you need regarding arias.  It looks like a
really useful site!
When I clicked, there was a listing for every aria and recitative in
Don Giovanni, so I just scrolled down until I hit Act  II Scene 5,
which had the following information listed:

"Troppo mi...Non mi dir" - No. 23, Recitative and Aria
from Act II, Scene V of the Italian opera, Don Giovanni by Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart.
Libretto : Lorenzo da Ponte 
The role is Dona Anna, who is a noble woman
Voice Part : soprano   Fach : dramatic coloratura 
Setting : A room in the palace of Donna Anna 
Range : E4 to A#/Bb6. Tessitura : G4 to A6 
Donna Anna, who is still strongly affected by her father's death, asks
that Don Ottavio cease talking about marriage until she has had time
to get over this tragedy. She still loves him, she says, but would
like him to be patient.
You can find a sound file (complete) as a MIDI file and zip format
sequenced by Bill King.
It can be located in translated form through: Translation by Camila
Argolo Freitas Batista.
Recordings : Complete Opera  Excerpts from Opera 
Where to Find It : Score of opera and aria alone - Classical Vocal
Reprints, 1-800-298-7474. Catalog number for aria : #1908, for score :
#50098 (Ricordi). Buy vocal score online at Sheet Music Plus.

I hope that this is what you are looking for.  If not, I am fluent in
Italian, and can start searching on Italian search sites, because they
are notoriously better at opera information--obviously--than American

Let me know.  Post a request for answer clarification, if you need it.
 I'll be on the lookout!!

Hope that this is what you needed!

Thank you for your answer.  Does Don Ottavio sing any recitatives
during this scene as well?

Clarification of Answer by aliciadenney-ga on 03 Nov 2003 07:26 PST
Act II Sence 5 is:
"Zitto...lascia ch'io senta (Don Giovanni) (Masetto) 
This means, "shut up and let me listen to what this person is saying."
Below is the full text of this scene in Italian and Enlgish. I dont
think that Ottavio sings anything here, but we can keep trying to
figure this out if you arent satisfied!  Please just let me know!
