Production notes: 
The libretto for this production was an adaptation of Antonio Salvi's libretto Astianatte first set by Perti for Florence in 1701 (see Sartori ID 3265). The libretto can be linked to Euripides via Racine: it is an adaptation of Racine's tragedy into an opera libretto; according to the operatic convention the ending is modified into a 'lieto fine' (happy ending). The composer for this production is apparently unknown. The performances took place in the summer of 1716.
