“ Tolomeo ” was Handel’s last opera for the Royal Academy of Music in London . Composed between March and 19 April 1728, it was premiered on 30 April. Handel revived the opera several times further: in 1730 in an extensive revision, with seven performances, and in 1733 with four performances.
The historical background is the dispute between Cleopatra III and her younger son Ptolemaio X Alexander I ( Tolomeo ). In 110 BC Cleopatra drove Tolomeo out of Egypt . She died, irreconciled to him, in 101 BC.
The new vocal score is based on the “Halle Handel Edition” (vol. II/20), published in 2000. The main part contains the version from the premiere. The extensive appendix also enables later versions to be performed.
