Porpora: Son frà l'onde in mezzo al mare

Aria from Gli Orti Esperidi
Forces: soprano, strings & continuo

Venere's aria from the end of act I uses all the illusions of the crashing waves upon the shore, convincing her lover, Adone, to remain with her. Written for the great Marianna Bulgarelli (La Romanina: 1684 - 1734) it is a wonderfully 'splashy' coloratura aria.
