Production notes: 
Libretto: 'Le rovine di Troia. Intermedi in musica rappresentati nel Teatro di S. Cassiano di Venezia l'anno 1707 nell'opera intitolata Achille Placato'. This is a group of sung comic intermezzi that were performed in the intervals of Antonio Lotti's opera Achille placato (Production ID 10574) by specialized buffo (comic) singers Marchesini and Cavana. It is likely that the intermezzi were related to the plot of the opera, and thus to the plots of Hekabe and Trojan Women.
