1 January 1717
Degree of relationship to ancient play:
The libretto for this production, which took place in the winter of 1717, 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's Andromaque: it is an adaptation of Racine's tragedy into an opera libretto; according to the operatic convention the ending is modified into a ''ieto fine' (happy ending). This was the second production of Torri's opera; the first one had taken place in Munich in the previous year (see Production ID 10693).
