L’isola disabitata (“The Desert Island”), Hob. 28/9, is an opera (azione teatrale in due parte) by Joseph Haydn, his tenth opera, written for the Eszterházy court and premiered December 6, 1779. The libretto by Pietro Metastasio was previously set by Giuseppe Bonno and subsequently used by Manuel García. Nino Rota has set excerpts to music as well. Haydn’s work has long been remembered for its dramatic Sturm und Drang ouverture, but the rest of the opera did not see print until H. C. Robbins Landon’s 1976 rental edition. A new edition by Tom Busse is to be published on the net in October 2007. The piece is striking for using orchestral accompagnati throughout. There is also a libretto of the same title by Carlo Goldoni (using the pen name Polisseno Fegeio), set by Giuseppe Scarlatti in 1757; it concerns a Chinese woman and Dutch sailors and was revived in 1760 (and again in Vienna in 1773) under the title La cinese smarrita.
