This ballo serio-tragico was used as interval entertainment during the production of Domenico Cimarosa's opera Chi dell'altrui si veste presto si spoglia (Sartori ID 5439); the programme of the ballet was also published separately (Sartori ID 15991). It is likely that it drew on Euripides and/or Seneca. The performances took place in the autumn of 1793. Cimarosa's opera (accompanied by Angiolini's ballet) was one of the first operas presented in the new Teatro de San Carlos, the first bourgeois opera house in Lisbon.cl
