Författare: Laura Pigozzi.
Artaserse is scored for 2 trumpets, 2 horns, 2 oboes, first and second violins, violas, timpani and basso continuo. Eighteenth-century Italian operas in serious style are almost always set in a distant or legendary past and are built around historical, pseudo-historical, or mythological characters. The main character of Metastasio’s Artaserse is based on the life of king Artaxerxes I of Persia, a ruler of the fifth century B. Mandane, the daughter of King Serse, and Arbace, the son of the King’s general Artabano, are in love. Serse has opposed their marriage and banished Arbace from the palace.
Arbace climbs the wall into the garden. The two young lovers express their love for each other, as well as their pain for not being able to be together despite their love. As Mandane heads back into the palace, Artabano arrives carrying a bloody sword. His fury at Serse’s treatment of his son and his desire for Arbace to become King have led him to assassinate Serse. Artabano confesses the murder to Arbace and exchanges his bloody sword for that of Arbace.
