Tomaso Albinoni was a Venetian composer and violinist, belonging to the Baroque musical season.

During his lifetime, Albinoni was one of the most famous composers in Italy and was put on a par with Corelli and Vivaldi. His works have been on the Venetian stage for almost 50 years (more than most of his contemporaries), his instrumental works have been exhibited several times in Venice, Amsterdam and London and enjoyed great popularity.

His opera production includes as many as 51 titles but only 3 complete works have been received to date: “Zenobia, regina de Palmireni” (Venice, Teatro dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Carnival 1694), “Engelberta” (Venice, Teatro di San Cassiano, Carnival 1709), “La statira” (Rome, Teatro Capranica, Carnival 1726).

For the rest, just a few “arias” are preserved from around fifteen works. Many of Albinoni’s works and the musical traces of most theatrical works were lost during the Second World War.

The staging of this work is by the Teatro La Fenice in collaboration with the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory. This work is an initiative aimed at promoting music among young audiences and enhancing the training of young talents to encourage the start of their artistic career.
