For many years Handel’s Giove in Argo (Jupiter in Argos)
remained virtually unknown because through an accident
of history no full score had survived. The discovery of two
missing arias in 2001 made it possible to reconstruct this
lost opera, which now appears on the London stage for the
first time since 1739. Handel took most of the numbers from
his earlier works but also supplied some outstanding new
music. Giove is a classic baroque pastoral, peopled with a
mix of gods and mortals, most of them in disguise,
wandering in a wood as Jupiter attempts simultaneously
to seduce two virtuous women with equal lack of success.
The score is rich in choruses—more than any other Handel
opera—dazzling virtuoso arias, and expressive accompanied
recitatives. Restored to its rightful place among Handel’s
last operas, Giove in Argo can finally be savored in all its
colourful charm.

John H Roberts, Professor of Music Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley
