In 1721, the composer Johann Adolf Hasse, who was born in Bergedorf near Hamburg, travelled to Italy to study with Alessandro Scarlatti. Four years later, Hasse experienced great success in Naples with his opera »Marc’Antonio e Cleopatra« – not least thanks to two great singers in the main roles: Vittoria Tesi and Carlo Broschi, who is better known as the castrato singer Farinelli. Three centuries later, in alto Delphine Galou and countertenor Valer Sabadus, a real dream team assumes the title roles in Hasse’s early Italian hit.
