Il Giustino

Dramma per musica in three acts (1724)

Music by

Antonio Vivaldi

Text by

Antonio Maria Lucchini after Nicolò Beregan and Pietro Pariati

Love, eroticism, jealousy and intrigue, war and violence, lust for power, tests of courage and great visions: Antonio Vivaldi’s »Il Giustino« offers an action-packed and emotionally charged stage spectacle about the young farmer Giustino’s rise to the apex of Roman politics. Here, not only can Byzantine heroines be heard but also bears, sea monsters and voices from beyond the grave.

In the 1920s, a large number of operas composed by Vivaldi were rediscovered, including »Il Giustino«. These manuscripts shed new light on the composer’s work, who was primarily celebrated as a composer of Baroque era instrumental music at that time but whose operatic works were largely unknown. Almost one hundred imaginative, contrasting arias and recitatives are included in the score, into which Vivaldi artfully wove citations from earlier works.
