In the first act, a herald declares that Alceste's husband Admeto, the King of Thessaly, is on the brink of death with little hope of being saved. However, Admeto's close friend Evandro believes that the Oracle of Apollo might help Admeto. As Alceste enters, she laments her husband's impending death with an extended recitative and the aria "Io non Chiedo"/"Grands dieux!" Alceste reiterates the need to plead with the gods to spare her husband before leading the people to the temple. Inside, the High Priest asks the Oracle about Admeto's fate; Admeto will indeed die unless someone else dies in his place. Alceste secretly decides to give up her own life to save her husband . . . - UNT Music Library note

Platée comic opera by Jean-Philippe Rameau( Visual )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in French and English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written for the 1745 marriage of the Dauphin and the Spanish Infanta, Platée was a minor revolution when first performed, and was also the first purely burlesque work staged. Rameau's work on the vicissitudes of love satirises the sacrosanct rules of 18th century operatic form and is an enormous pastiche of traditional French opera. With love as its most popular subject, Rameau's use of Jupiter's feigned courtship of Plataea gleefully parodies every 18th century musical form. Thalia and Momus have come to help Thespius, the inventor of comedy, stage a performance to correct the faults of humans. The subject will be "the laughable strategy" once used by Jupiter to cure the jealousy of the irascible Juno."--SBS
