Info for Vinci: Siroe, re di Persia

Based on a ponderous libretto by Metastasio (who defined his own work as stellar) Leonardo Vincis dramma per musica was premiered in Venice in 1726 and was triumphantly acclaimed. Since then, Siroe, Re di Persia was put to music by composers such as Vivaldi, Handel, Hasse, and Galuppi, to mention just a few. The story uses some of the elements of the plot of Partenope, almost as if it were a sequel moved to Persia. Siroes plot revolves around a family mystery mingled with passions, traitors en travesti, fatherly affection and filial honesty that echoes Shakespeares King Lear. Performed in concert version at Teatro San Carlo of Naples in 2018, this rare opera was chosen to open the theatres 281st season. Conductor Antonio Florio , specialist of the Neapolitan Baroque repertoire, revised the score.
