Aria of ARIODANTE
Dopo notte, atra e funesta,
splende in Ciel più vago il sole,
e di gioia empie la terra.
Mentre in orrida tempesta
il mio legno è quasi assorto,
giunge in porto,
e'l lido afferra.
After black and gloomy night
the sun shines more radiantly in the sky
and fills the earth with joy.
Whereas in the fearful tempest
my barque was almost enguelfed,
now it has entered harbour
and reached the shore.
