ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Pietro Metastasio’s libretto for Betulia liberata is among the most widely set oratorio texts by the Viennese court poet. Niccolò Jommelli, who was educated in Naples and worked for many years at the Württemberg court, set the libretto in 1743. Besides sacred music, Jommelli’s fame is above all based on his operas. Although he also wrote comical operas, he is mainly one of the most characteristic composers of opera seria in the mid-18th century.
