Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

IDAMANTE
languente, poi risoluto
Oh padre!...
Ah non t'arresti inutile pietà,
Né vana ti lusinghi
Tenerezza d'amor. Deh vibra un colpo,
Che ambi tolga d'affanno.
Ma che più tardi? Eccomi pronto, adempi
Il sacrifizio, il voto.

IDOMENEO
Oh qual mi sento
In ogni vena insolito vigor?...
Or risoluto io son... l'ultimo amplesso
Ricevi... e mori.

IDAMANTE, IDOMENEO
Oh Dio!...

IDAMANTE
da sé
Oh Ilia... ahimè!
a Idomeneo
Vivi felice,

IDAMANTE, IDOMENEO
Addio.

English Libretto or Translation:

IDAMANTE
wearily, then with resolution
O father! ...
Do not let useless pity stop you,
nor the vain fondness of love
beguile you. Let the blow fall
that will relieve both of us from our distress.
But why delay further? I am ready; make
the sacrifice, fulfil the vow.

IDOMENEO
Oh, how I feel
unwonted strength in every vein ...
Now I am resolved ... receive
my last embrace ... and die.

IDAMANTE, IDOMENEO
O God!

IDAMANTE
aside
Alas, Ilia!
to Idomeneo
Be happy,

IDAMANTE, IDOMENEO
Farewell.
