Soon after 1733, when the great Roman poet Pietro Metastasio witnessed the premiere of his libretto L'Olimpiade, a procession of more than 50 composers began to set to music this tale of friendship, loyalty and passion. In the course of the 18th century, theatres across Europe commissioned operas from the Olympian composers of the day, and performances were acclaimed in the royal courts and public opera houses from Rome to Moscow, London and Prague.
