Ecuba is one of the few works produced by Nicola Antonio Manfroce (Palmi 1791 – Naples 1813), great promise of the Italian musical scene at the start of the eighteen hundreds, and who died at the age of only 22 years in 1813, barely a year after the debut of his opera at the Naples Teatro San Carlo.

Main character of this masterpiece in three acts is the mythological queen of Troy, mother of the hero Hector, killed by Achilles during the famous war narrated in Homer’s Iliad. Euripides, the writer of tragedies, dedicated two of his works (The Trojan and Ecuba) to this figure of a woman who was doubled up in a deep agony such that it drove her to a vendetta for its own sake, without redemption or hope.
