Degree of relationship to ancient play:
Libretto: Antonio Landi, 'I Greci in Tauride. Dramma per musica in tre atti da rappresentarsi nel Regio Teatro di Berlino per ordine di sua maestà nel carnevale del 1773' (Berlin: Haude and Spener, 1772). This production was based on a reworking of Agricola's Oreste e Pilade written for Frederick the Great in 1772 (see Production ID 10571). The original production had been unsuccessful and Frederick himself required the recomposition of the work. The new production took place in early 1773, during the carnival season. Another production took place in Berlin in 1786 under the original title Oreste and Pilade (Sartori ID 17374).
