In the first act, a herald declares that Alceste's husband Admeto, the King of Thessaly, is on the brink of death with little hope of being saved. However, Admeto's close friend Evandro believes that the Oracle of Apollo might help Admeto. As Alceste enters, she laments her husband's impending death with an extended recitative and the aria "Io non Chiedo"/"Grands dieux!" Alceste reiterates the need to plead with the gods to spare her husband before leading the people to the temple. Inside, the High Priest asks the Oracle about Admeto's fate; Admeto will indeed die unless someone else dies in his place. Alceste secretly decides to give up her own life to save her husband . . . - UNT Music Library note
