Joyce DiDonato (Idamante) and Camilla Tilling (Ilia) singing the love duet "S'io non moro a questi accenti" from Mozart's Idomeneo. Paris, february 2009.

English libretto:

IDAMANTE
If I do not die at these words
it is not true that love can kill
and that joy oppresses the heart.

ILIA
No more grief, no more lamenting!
I will be constant and true to you;
you are my only treasure!

IDAMANTE
You shall be ...

ILIA
As you desire me.

IDAMANTE
My bride ...

ILIA
Will you be
my bridegroom?

IDAMANTE, ILIA
Let love speak!
Ah, our joy banishes
the cruel torments we have suffered;
our love is all‑conquering.
