Venice Company: Teatro San Moisé
A charmingly light-hearted libretto by the well-known Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni, was set to music by the as-yet-inexperienced, but very talented young Neapolitan-trained Tommaso Traetta (1727-1779). There is an appealing mixture of grand opera seria arias, treated somewhat tongue-in-cheek, with very cunning, shorter, simpler numbers in opera buffa style.
