After Monteverdi's death in 1543, Francesco Cavalli was recognized, in the words of the librettist and commissioning patron, as "the Greatest Composer in Italy." This week and next we'll hear the great reconstruction of the opera commissioned by Cardinal Giancarlo de Medici for the long-awaited birth of the Spanish Hapsburgs' prince and heir to the throne.
