Dai barbari Etiopi. I nostri campi
Fur devastati... arse le messi... e baldi
Della facil vittoria, i predatori
Gi`a marciano su Tebe!

Ed osan tanto!

Un guerriero indomabile, feroce,
Li conduce: Amonasro.

Il Re!

AIDA

Già Tebe è in armi e dalle cento porte
Sul barbaro invasore
Proromperà, guerra recando e morte.

IL RE
Sì: guerra e morte il nostro grido sia!

RAMFIS
Guerra!

RAMFIS, RADAMÈS, SACERDOTI, MINISTRI, CAPITANI
Guerra! Guerra! Tremenda, inesorata!

Iside venerata
Di nostre schiere invitte
Già designava il condottier supremo:
Radamès!

Ah! Sien grazie at Numi!
Son paghi i voti miei!

Radamès! Radamès! Radamès! Radamès!

English Libretto or Translation:

MESSENGER
The sacred soil of Egypt is invaded
by the barbarous Ethiopians. Our fields
have been laid waste... the crops burned… and
emboldened by easy victory, the plunderers
are already marching on Thebes.

RADAMÈS, KING, RAMFIS, PRIESTS, MINISTERS, CAPTAINS
Do they dare so much!

MESSENGER
A warrior indomitable and ferocious,
Amonasro, leads them.

RADAMÈS, KING, RAMFIS, PRIESTS, MINISTERS, CAPTAINS
The King!

AIDA
(My father!)

MESSENGER
Thebes is already in arms, and from her hundred gates
will sally forth to meet the barbarous invader
with war and death.

KING
Ay! Let war and death be our cry!

RAMFIS
War!

RAMFIS, RADAMÈS, PRIESTS, MINISTERS, CAPTAINS
War! War! Terrible, unrelenting!

KING
approaching Radamès
Revered Isis has already named
the commander-in-chief
of our unvanquished armies:
Radamès!

AIDA, AMNERIS, MINISTERS, CAPTAINS
Radamès!

RADAMÈS
Ah, thanks be to the gods!
My prayers are answered!

AMNERIS
(He, the leader!)

AIDA
(I tremble!)

MINISTERS, CAPTAINS
Radamès! Radamès! Radamès! Radamès!
