Abstract:

Francesco Maria Piave (1810-1876) was the librettist of Verdi's Ernani, I due Foscari, Macbeth, Il corsaro, Stiffelio, Rigoletto, La traviata, Simon Boccanegra, Aroldo and La forza del destino. He suffered a catastrophic stroke at the end of 1867 which left him paralyzed for the remaining nine years of his life. This libretto was neither set nor published and is apparently unrecorded. Although Piave places the action in the 1570s, he tells us that his plot derives from the story of the great Roman courtesan Imperia Cognati (1486-1512), whose daughter is now living in Rome under the assumed name of Giulia. The principal characters are Imperia, orfanella creduta Giulia...Soprano; Ascanio, soldato...1 tenore; Petrucci, patrizio romano...Baritono; Marcantonio Colonna, il gran Capitano...Basso prof(ondo)--Vendor information.
