About L'Egisto

The lovers Egisto (a descendant of Apollo) and Clori were abducted by pirates in Delos; Clori was sold in Zakynthos, where the pirates also captured Climene, on the day of her wedding to Lidio. A year later, Egisto and Climene escape to Zakynthos, to find Clori in love with Lidio and also courted by Climene’s brother Hipparco. In the course of 24 hours, dismay, remorse, plans of revenge, madness, and the quarrels and interference of the gods, lead to reconciliation and a happy ending. Produced and presented by HGO. HGO's mission is advancing young singers, and once again they are bringing opera back to London with two fabulous casts in a specially-commissioned new edition of Francesco Cavalli’s musical fable L’Egisto, fully-staged with baroque orchestra.
