L’anima del filosofo, ossia Orfeo ed Euridice dramma per musica
pixel
pixelJoseph Haydn
The opera was commissioned by Johann Peter Salomon for the King's Theatre, Haymarket, London, in 1791. After arriving in London on 1 January of that year, Haydn commented in a letter to Prince Anton Esterházy: “The new opera libretto which I am to compose is entitled Orfeo, in 5 acts, but I shall not receive it for a few days. It will be completely different from that of Gluck. The prima donna is called Madame Lops from Munich – she is a pupil of the famous Mingotti. Seconda donna is Madame Capelletti. Primo hommo is the celebrated Davide. The opera contains only 3 persons, viz, Madame Lops, Davide, and a castrato, who apparently is not very special. Incidentally, the opera is supposed to contain many choruses, ballets and a lot of big changes of scenery.” Unfortunately, owing to political intrigue, the opera was never performed in the composer's lifetime. continue reading
