Production notes: 
Libretto: Argomenti. Del ballo tragico di Fedra, e del ballo eroicomico di Lorezzo (Milan: Giambattista Bianchi, 1789). This was one of the ballets which were used as interval entertainments during opera performances at La Scala in the carnival season of 1789 (between Christmas and Lent). It is likely that it drew on either Euripides or on Seneca. The use of Fedra as an interval ballet is recorded in the libretto for Vincezo Campobasso d'Alessandro's opera Antigona (Sartori ID 2096) together with two other Angiolini's ballets: Lorezzo and Divertimento campestre.
