El Prometeo, by the Italian composer Antonio Draghi, has not been performed since 22 December 1669! Composed on a Spanish libretto based on the play by Calderón, it was performed only twice that same year, at the Imperial court of Vienna, for the birthday celebrations of Maria Anna of Austria, queen of Spain.

Today, only one manuscript of the score still exists. It is from this manuscript, in Vienna, that Leonardo García Alarcón, who has made a speciality of bringing to light forgotten masterpieces, has restored and updated this missing link in the history of Opera, between the Venetian lyric tradition and that which reigned in Vienna over the following centuries.

Leonardo Garciá Alarcón, who directs the Cappella Mediterranea, is the Dijon Opera’s new artist in residence: a discovery not to be missed.
