Alcina - Music by George Frideric Handel; Libretto by Riccardo Broschi premiered in 1735. I saw the Washington National Opera Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Performance on 18 Nov 2017 at the Eisenhower Theater at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.
About the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program
"Tornami a vagheggiar" sung by Ying Fang (this was from the main cast not the Domingo-Cafritz cast but illustrates the stage design for this WNO Production)
An example of the baroque singing found in Alcina

The Exterminating Angel by Thomas Adés Opera Chat -
Tiranna gelosia dell'amato Ruggier
tormenta il core,
e pur solo per lui mi strugge amore.
Tornami a vagheggiar,
te solo vuoi amar
caro mio bene.
Già ti donai il mio cor;
fido sarà il mio amor;
mai ti sarò crudel,
cara mia speme.
Tyranny jealousy of the beloved Ruggier
torments the core,
and only for him is love for me.
Return me to vague,
you only want to love
this faithful soul,
my dear good.
I already gave you my heart;
I will trust my love;
I will never be cruel to you,
my dear spury.
