Didone is an opera, set to a libretto by Giovanni Francesco Busenello (later librettist for Claudio Monteverdi). The opera was first performed at Venice's Teatro San Cassiano during 1641.
The plot is based on Virgil's Aeneid (Book 4 in particular), though Busenello, in his second libretto for Cavalli, replaces Dido's tragic suicide of Virgil with a happy ending in which Dido marries Iarbas, King of the Getuli, who saves Dido from herself after Aeneas abandons her. The action is divided into a prologue and 3 acts.
"This opera smacks of modern opinions. It is not made in respect of the ancient rules; […]." Thus begins the composer in the "Argomento" that precedes the libretto of Didone for performance at the San Cassiano Theatre in Venice in 1641 and immediately delineates the new direction given to the original story by the librettist Gian Francesco Busenello, noble amateur.
Likewise Pier Francesco Cavalli for the first time sets about writing the music for a story that is both tragic and heroic with an almost unwonted deployment of means and new expressive intent.
He studies and enriches the work's language inserting dramatic substance and striving for a melodic conception that certainly recalls that of his 'maestro' Monteverdi yet also steps beyond it.
