    Les Talens Lyriques, Paul-Antoine Benos-Djian, Christophe Rousset
    The opera seria "Polifemo" by Nicola Porpora (1686-1768), composed for the Opera of the Nobility, a rival company of Haendel's Royal Academy of Music, was premiered in London in 1735. Its libretto, signed by Paolo Antonio Rolli, is inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses and stages the myth of Polyphemus, Acis and Galatea. In his aria "Alto Giove", Acio (a role created by the famous castrato Farinelli) thanks Jupiter for his resurrection as a river beside his beloved for eternity.
