ELETTRA
Idol mio, se ritroso
Altra amante a me ti rende,
Non m'offende rigoroso,
Più m'alletta austero amor.

Scaccierà vicino ardore
Dal tuo sen l'ardor lontano;
Più la mano può d'amore,
S'è vicin l'amante cor.

S'ode da lontano armoniosa marcia

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 13 - Aria
ELECTRA
My dearest, if reluctantly
your other lover yields you to me,
constrained love does not deter me,
and your coldness is more alluring to me.
Passion close at hand will drive
from your heart more distant fires;
the hand of love has more power
when the beloved is near.
A harmonious march is heard in the distance.
