Francesco Cavalli (1602-1676) was probably the greatest opera composer in seventeenth-century Venice, where the new musical form found a particularly promising home. Cavalli made an enormous contribution with over forty works for the stage. Premiered in Venice in 1641, La Didone is based on Virgil's Aeneid. The subject is familiar: the doomed love of Dido, queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, the hero who fled Troy and later founded Rome.
