Literes: Jupiter Y Semele
Label: HARMONIA MUNDI
Inspired by the Metamorphoses of Ovid, this baroque zarzuela was a great success in its own time and was performed all across the Iberian peninsula. Colourful characters and the originality and vigour of its score comprised the ingredients for its extensive popularity. Eduardo López Banzo and his group Al Ayre Español breathe new life into a work which since those times has fallen into obscurity.
