Notes & Reviews:

After a long war, Turkish emperor Soliman and Persian sophi Tamasse decide to seal the peace between their two countries and, to this end, exchange hostages. The preliminary treaty stipulates that, in order to make this alliance solid, Tamasse will wed Zanaida, Soliman's daughter. Meanwhile, the sophi falls in love with Osira, a Persian hostage sent by the emperor. This is where the action of this opera begins, the plot skillfully mixing Tamasse's infidelity, Zanaida's magnanimity, and Osira's ambition. It is a particularly appealing opera by the fourth and last of Johann Sebastian's sons, whose life was atypical for a Bach, for he carried out his career not in Germany but in Italy and England.
