Recitativo

ILIA
Vede condurre i prigionieri
Ecco il misero resto de' Troiani
Dal nemico furor salvi.

IDAMANTE
Or quei ceppi
lo romperò, vuo' consolarli adesso.
da sé
Ahi! perché tanto far non so a me stesso!


SCENA III
Idamante, Ilia, Troiani prigionieri, uomini, e donne Cretesi
Si levano a'prigionieri la catene, li quali dimostrano gratitudine.


IDAMANTE
Scingete le catene, ed oggi il mondo,
oh fedele Sidon suddita nostra,
Vegga due gloriosi
Popoli in dolce nodo avvinti, e stretti
Di perfetta amistà.
Elena armò la Grecia, e l'Asia, ed ora
Disarma, e riunisce, ed Asia, e Grecia
Eroina novella,
Principessa più amabile, e più bella.

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitative
ILIA
watching the prisoners led in
Behold the wretched remnant of the Trojans,
saved from the enemy's fury.

IDAMANTE
Now I will break their bonds
and give them consolation.
aside
Ah! Why cannot I do as much for myself!


THIRD SCENE
Idamante, Ilia, Trojan prisoners, Cretan men and women
The prisoners' chains are removed; the prisoners show their gratitude.


IDAMANTE
Loosen their fetters, and today the world,
o faithful subjects of Sidon,
shall see two glorious peoples
united in the knot of friendship, bound together
in perfect harmony.
Helen armed Greece and Asia, but now
a new heroine
disarms and reunites Asia and Greece,
a princess more kindly and more lovely.
