Mozart: Ascanio in Alba
No pain, no gain, is the moral of this tale - short and sweet but taking more than two-and-a-half hours. As is usual in these "pastoral" tales, gods intervene with demi-gods, nymphs, spirits, shepherds and shepherdesses. Here, Venus is arranging for her "son" Ascanio fathered by Aeneas to be "wedded to the wisest nymph ever born of divine blood". This "Silvia" is the daughter of Hercules and, without ever meeting Ascanio, is in love with him thanks to Cupid. But she's not sure whether Ascanio is a vision or a reality. Much confusion ensues. And, naturally, Ascanio is a countertenor
Ascanio In Alba
Ascanio in Alba , K. Robbins Landon on 25 May as very worthwhile and professional. The opening scene introduces Venus and Ascanio, the son she had by Aeneas. The goddess vaunts the charms of Alba and invites her son to go and rule there. She urges him not to reveal his identity to Silvia, a nymph to whom he is betrothed, but to introduce himself to her under a false identity to test her virtue. While shepherds summon their promised ruler, Fauno reveals that the smiling face of Aceste, a priest, is a sign that the day will be a day of supreme happiness. Obeying the goddess, Ascanio pretends to be a foreigner attracted by the beauties of the place.
