Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

IDAMANTE
Ah qual gelido orror m'ingombra i sensi! ...
Lo vedo appena, il riconosco, e a miei
Teneri' accenti in un balen s'invola.
Misero! in che l'offesi, e come mai
Quel sdegno io meritai, quelle minaccie? ...
Vuo' seguirlo, e veder, oh sorte dura!
Qual mi sovrasti ancor più rea sventura.

English Libretto or Translation:

IDAMANTE
Ah, what icy horror numbs my senses ...
Hardly do I see and recognise him than,
at my tender words, he abruptly flees.
Alas! How did I offend him and how
have I deserved that anger and those threats?
I will follow and see, harsh fate,
what more cruel misfortune yet awaits me.
