Notes and Editorial Reviews

Under the banner of a renewed interest in comic opera – at least as far as the opening titles were concerned – the 2013 edition of Martina Franca’s Festival staged the first modern performance of a late work by Leonardo Leo, the “commedia pastorale” in three acts L’ambizione Delusa, on a libretto by Domenico Canicà.

This delightful rural comedy plot has as a counterpart truly wonderful music, rich in beautiful and original melodies which, rather than being harmonized, are set by Leo to contrapuntal accompaniments, showing the great mastery the composer had acquired.
