Description

Antonio Salvi's "Arminio" is one of the best-loved operatic librettos of the Baroque period. Against the historical background of the so-called "Battle of the Teutoburg Forest" in 9 AD in which the Cherusci leader Arminius as "Liberator of Germany" (Tacitus) inflicted a devastating defeat on the Romans, Handel's opera, first performed in 1737, is about the disputes between the Chatti and the Cherusci. Arminius has married the daughter of his arch-enemy Segestes. When he is imprisoned, Segestes, who has conspired with the Romans, sees his opportunity for revenge. • Urtext edition based on the "Halle Handel Edition" • Libretto in Italian with singable German translation • Comprehensive foreword (Ger/Eng) with important information on the history of the libretto as well as on the genesis and the performance history of the work. A detailed resume of the plot is also contained. • Extensive appendix with richly ornamented versions of two arias • Idiomatic piano reduction • First performance in Halle in 2014
