Handel'sDeidamiawas premiered on 10 January 1741 only a few weeks afterImeneo.
The librettist Paoli Rolli , a previously unsucessful librettist for Handel, delivered with his finest workDeidamia. On 10 February 1741 the third and final opera performances of this work took place under Handel's direction. Oddly enoughDeidamiawould not be performed again until the beginning of the 20th century. This opera is based on the themes of humour and seriousness. The personal harmonising of Heroism (Achilles) and Love ( Deidamia ) build on the essential dramatic features of this work.Deidamiais the last great opera in a series of masterpieces:Orlando,Poro,Ezio,Ariodante,Alcina,SerseandImeneo.
