Line-cut of a contemporary manuscript copy. Andromeda liberata, a Venetian pasticcio-serenata based on a libretto by Vincenzo Cassani (c.1677-c.1736), is a genre distinct from opera and the chamber cantata, rarely acted in costume in a purpose-built theater with scenery, and performed by singers reading from music in a stationary position in improvised surroundings.
Although the team of composers responsible for the music is not recorded, the work is presumed to be by Porpora, Albinoni, Porta, and Lotti. Linen. $231 (view
