Provenance

Leo Schofield, Sydney

Carlo Broschi, better known by his stage name Farinelli was one of Italy's most exceptional castrati of the 18th century. He is here depicted as Epitide in the opera seria, Merope by Geminiano Giacomelli (libretto by Apostolo Zegno), first performed in the Teatro Grimani di San Giovanni Grisostomo in Venice in 1734. Merope recounts the tragic tale of Epitide trying to reclaim his throne of Messina from his mother after his father is killed. This opera is famous for two arias, both sung by Epitide, "Sposa, non mi conosci" and "Quell'usignolo" because of their difficult coloratura. Activities
