La Calisto by Pier Francesco Cavalli( Visual )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Calisto sait parler au public d'aujourd'hui : d'abord parce que les dieux y sont devenus faillibles et même lubriques ; ensuite parce qu'elle est servie par un véritable bijou de mise en scène, mêlant sans cesse le noble et le trivial, le comique et le tragique. Cette Calisto juxtapose à merveille la déclamation montéverdienne et l'aria nouvelle, mais aussi le divin et le terrestre..."

Cornelia is prevented from suicide by her would-be lover Curio and Sextus threatens vengeance. Cleopatra, meanwhile, plots to use Caesar in order to displace her brother Ptolemy. Achillas offers to kill Caesar and make Ptolemy king, if he may have Cornelia as a reward. Cleopatra disguises herself as one injured by Ptolemy and seeks Caesar's interest, while Cornelia and her son are taken prisoner by Ptolemy. Caesar and Cleopatra eventually come together, her identity now revealed, while Ptolemy presses his attentions on Cornelia. Caesar escapes, to avoid a planned attempt on his life. Cleopatra is taken prisoner by Ptolemy but Caesar, returning, promises to rescue both her and Cornelia, with the help of Sextus, who, in an assault on Ptolemy's palace, kills the despot.
