No. 29a - Aria

ELETTRA
D'Oreste, d'Aiace
Ho in seno i tormenti,
D'Aletto la face
Già morte mi dà.

Squarciatemi il cuore
Ceraste, serpenti,
O un ferro il dolore
in me finirà.

Parte infuriata

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 29a - Aria
ELECTRA
Within my breast I feel
the torments of Orestes and of Ajax;
Alecto's torch
brings me death.
Tear out my heart,
you horned serpents,
or a sword
shall end my pain.
Exit in fury
