Production notes: 
This production of the dramma per musica took place during the carnival season of 1762 (between Christmas and Lent). Three ballets were performed as interval entertainments: Feste fiamminghe; L'arrivo d'Europa nell'isola di Creta; Ballo di Greci. Only the last one could have related to the action in the opera. Another production of an opera with the same title with music by Bertoni, but on a different libretto, took place in London in 1782 (Sartori ID 12730). Cigna-Santi's libretto was also set by Carlo Franchi for Rome in 1766 (Sartori ID 12713).
