Ombra mai piu - Aria from Xerxes (Largo) Handel Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This well-known tune is most often heard today as a piano solo, called Handel's Largo. It was originally a song (Aria) from Handel's opera Xerxes

Xerxes was the ancient king who ruled Persia from 486-465 BC. In Greek history, Herodotus refers to the Persian king as the "tyrant" who bridged the Hellespont, captured Athens, then watched his Aegean fleet destroyed in a storm.

In Handel's opera, which is "comic", the plot is all about romance, unrequited love, sinister plots, and a happy ending. The characters include King Xerxes, who pursues Romilda, determined to make her love him. But Romilda loves Xerxes' brother, Arsamene. And so it goes on........
