SCENA II
Idomeneo, Ilia

Recitativo

ILIA
Se mai porriposo apparse
Su l'Argivo orizzonte il Dio di Delo,
Eccolo in questo giorno, oh sire, in cui
L'augusta tua presenza i tuoi diletti
Sudditi torna in vita, e lor pupille,
Che ti piansero estinto, or rasserena.

IDOMENEO
Principessa gentil, il bel sereno
Anche alle tue pupille omai ritorni.
Il lungo duol dilegua.
Di me, de' miei tesori
Ilia, disponi, e mia cura sarà
Dartene chiare prove
Dell'amicizia mia.

ILIA
Seri certa, e un dubbio in me colpa sarìa.

English Libretto or Translation:


SECOND SCENE
Idomeneo, Ilia

Recitative
ILIA
If ever the god of Delos
appeared in splendour on the Argive horizon,
he does so this day. O sire,
whose august presence
restores your beloved subjects to life,
You comfort their eyes which mourned you as dead.

IDOMENEO
Gentle princess, let sweet serenity
return to your own eyes, too;
end your long grief.
Ilia, I and all I own are at your disposal,
and it will be my concern
to offer you clear proof
of my friendship.

ILIA
I am sure of it, and I would be wrong to doubt it.
