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
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.

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!
