No. 29 - Recitativo

IDOMENEO
Oh ciel pietoso!...

IDAMANTE
Ilia...

ILIA
Idamante, udisti?

ARBACE
Oh gioia! oh amor, oh Numi!

ELETTRA
Oh smania! oh furie...
Oh disperata Elettra!
Vedrò Idamante alla rivale in braccio?
Ah no; il germano Oreste
Ne' cupi abissi io vuo' seguir.
Or or compagna
M'avrai là nell'inferno
A sempiterni guai, al pianto eterno.

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 29 - Recitative
IDOMENEO
O merciful heaven! ...

IDAMANTE
Ilia ...

ILIA
Idamante, did you hear?

ARBACE
O joy! What love, ye gods!

ELECTRA
O madness! Ye furies ...
Despairing Electra.
Must I see Idamante in my rival's arms?
Ah no, let me follow
my brother Orestes into the hollow abyss.
Now you will have me
for companion in Hades,
in eternal woe, in endless lamenting.
