No. 1 - Aria

ILIA
Padre, germani, addio!
Voi foste, io vi perdei.
Grecia, cagion tu sei.
E un greco adorerò?

D'ingrata al sangue mio
So, che la colpa avrei;
Ma quel sembiante, oh Dei!
Odiare ancor non so.

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 1 - Aria
ILIA
Father, brothers, farewell!
You are no more; I have lost you.
Greece, you are the cause;
and shall I now love a Greek?
I know that I am guilty
of abandoning my kin;
but I cannot bring myself,
o gods, to hate that face.
