Description: From back-to-back seasons at two theatres in Jesi, we have new productions of Pergolesi's first and last stage works. Salustia (1732) is an opera seria based on Zeno's Alessandro Severo and is notable for the grandeur and pathos of the role for its principal male, a throwback to the high Baroque, while the influence of the buffo aria is already starting to influence the composer's style. Recorded 2011. 2 DVDs.
