Scenic production of a baroque light opera. It was composed for the wedding of two noble Genoese : Paola Brignole and Carlo Spinola. It consists of a short nuptial work with three mythical characters: Amphitrite, Neptune and Proteus in a setting with acquatic allusions. The dramatic situations the libretto offers – the ‘provocations’ of Proteus, Amphitrite’s jealousy, Neptune’s anger – enable Stradella to evoke a wide range of emotions and affections which enliven the entire opera.
