* George Frideric Handel
Imeneo was premièred at Lincoln’s Inn Field in London on 22 November
1740 and given a
second performance on 13 December of the same year. Unlike the
varied events and
convoluted action otherwise typical of opera seria, it has an
uncomplicated plot line with a
clear dramatic structure and excellent music. The arranger of the
libretto is unknown.
Handel wrote this opera for his final season in London, but he also
revived it in Dublin
on 24 and 31 March 1742 as a “serenata”. For this revival,
presumably a concert performance,
he altered the 1740 score. The alterations are listed in the
appendix to the vocal score.
Our vocal score is based on the Urtext of the full score published
in the Halle Handel Edition.
