This season’s first production consists of selections of the opera and an informal discussion about the characters and the story that ties them all together. We hope to introduce our audience to the Opera and perform it fully staged in the following season.
Bernardo Pasquini (1637 –1710) is mostly known today for his keyboard music but was a prolific composer of vocal music which included: 18 Operas, 15 oratorios, over 50 cantatas, and a number of motets. In spite of the success of these works during his lifetime, this repertoire is rarely programmed in concerts today and virtually impossible to find in recordings.
