Description: The prologue is a unique feature of early baroque opera: an opening scene where an allegorical figure enters the stage to prepare the audience for the musical drama to come and here it becomes a gateway to a bit of unusual repertoire too. Italian-English texts. Francesca Aspromonte (soprano), il pomo d’oro; Enrico Onofri.
