Synopsis: The assembled people of Dom-Rémy are attempting to convince their king not to go to the oak tree at which King Carlo dreamed he would find someone to save France. They tell him that the Devil is strong in power there.

Pondo è letal, Carlo's aria from Giovanna d'Arco

Pondo è letal, martiro il serto al capo mio;
Perchè fruir di libero aere non posso anch'io?
Pace, che al più mendico prodiga sei di te,
Ah mandami un raggio amico, 
Ah vieni non son più re.
