Description: Set in a prehistoric Sardinia (by a native Sardinian who studied under Respighi) and only premiered months before Porrino's death though its libretto was first commissioned as early as 1934, this is a colorfully orchestrated piece with local folk music making for an exotic sound. Forbidden love and treachery help give us wild-sounding warrior choruses, impassioned arias of love and anger and a satisfyingly unhappy ending. Great fun and Respighi would have been proud. 2 CDs. Libretto and translation available on-line. Paoletta Marrocu (soprano), Manrico Signorini (bass), Angelo Villari (tenor), Orchestra and Chorus of Fondazione Teatro Lirico di Cagliari; Anthony Bramall.
