Il Sant'Alessio by Stefano Landi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An opera in three acts composed by Stefano Landi in 1631 with a libretto by Giulio Rospigliosi. Stefano Landi's "dramma musicale" was presented, by papal commission, in Rome in 1632. It is a work that is typical of the Counter-Reformation in its artistic strategy of seducing the ears and the eyes in order to bind the audience more closely to the Catholic church. Ironically, the plot is one of self-denial. Alessio (Alexis) was the son of the Roman senator in the fifth century. Immediately after his wedding, he told his wife that he was leaving her to serve God. He stayed away for 17 years. Then he returned as a pilgrim and was taken in as a lowly servant in his family's house, unrecognized, under the noses of a wife and parents who still mourned for him. He passed away 17 years later, and only after his death was it revealed to his loved ones that he had been with them all that time. Alexis subsequently was recognized as a saint, although to our sensibilities, his behavior seems a little hard on his family
