Alessandro Scarlatti (Palermo 1660 – Naples 1725) is the father of music drama and of da capo aria (not to mention of Domenico, the cusp of Baroque keyboard creativity). He composed La Griselda with libretto by Apostolo Zeno, re-worked by an anonymous author – possibly the dedicatee Francesco Maria Ruspoli – and based on the final tale of Boccaccio’d Decameron (set between Sicily and Apulia). It was a very successful text, set to music by a number of composers: from Albinoni to Paër and Massenet. The opera was staged in 1721 in Rome’s Teatro Capranica with a cast of acclaimed castratos including Antonio Bernacchi, Giacinto Fontana known as “Il farfallino”, and Giovanni Carestini.
