CORO
Qual nuovo terrore!
Qual rauco muggito!
De' Numi il furore
Ha il mare infierito.
Nettuno, mercé!

Incalza la tempesta, il mare si gonfia, il cielo tuona, e lampeggia, e i frequenti fulmini incendiano le navi. Un mostro formidabile s'appresenta fuori dell'onde.

CORO
Qual odio, qual ira
Nettuno ci mostra!
Se il cielo s'adira,
Qual colpa è la nostra?
Il reo qual è?

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 17 - Chorus
CHORUS
What new terror!
What hoarse roaring!
The gods' fury
has whipped up the sea.
Neptune, have mercy!

The storm increases, the sea rises: the storm approaches, the sea swells. Thunder and lightning. The ships are struck by lightning. A terrible monster appears from out of the sea.

CHORUS
What hate, what anger
Neptune shows us!
What is our sin,
that heaven rages?
Who is the guilty one?
