Price: $39.98

Description: Premiered in Madrid in January of 1747, this is a zarzuela, mixing Italianate recitative and da capo arias with Spanish popular elements (two seguidillas and a duetto burlesco) grafted on in the form of a pair of Spanish peasants who have nothing to do with the Euripides-inspired tragic plot (note: Tracia is the misunderstanding of the librettist for Tauris). The long arias come complete with ornamentation and prominent parts for solo instruments (one gives a pair of horns much to accomplish). 2 CDs. Spanish-English libretto. Marta Almajano, María Espada, Raquel Andueza, Soledad Cardoso (sopranos), Marta Infante (mezzo), El Concierto Español; Emilio Moreno.
