Libretto: Pietro Pariati, 'Anfitrione. Tragicommedia per musica da rappresentarsi nel Teatro Tron di S. Cassano l'autunno dell'anno 1707. Consacrato all'altezza [...] di Ernesto Augusto duca di Brunsvic (Venice: Marino Rosetti, 1707). Apostolo Zeno's contribution as a librettist is not confirmed. The intervals featured (possibly sung) intermezzos by Pariati, titled Erighetta e Don Chilone or simply Don Chilone. This operatic work served as a basis for another production at Hamburg in 1725 (see Production ID 10641).
