IFIGENIA IN AULIDE – an opera composed in 1738 by Giovanni Porta – Libretto by Apostolo Zeno.
CONCERT OF SELECTED ARIAS on November 9th at First Congregational Church Berkeley.
The Greek army, ready to battle against Troy under the command of King Agamemnon, was detained by contrary winds in the port of Aulis. The King appealed to the Oracle and the response was clear: it would not be possible to sail to Troy, without first placating the wrath of the Goddess Diana with a death. The death and sacrifice of Iphigenia, daughter of the King.
