|An enormous and complex work for soprano and continuo telling through her own voice the fate of Cleopatra after being betrayed and deserted by Rome. Poison, asps, vengeance, fury, it has everything. In 24(!) parts, some as short as 2 bars, Colonna has created a scene of operatic drama and intensity. The poetry is by Sigr D Donato Copeda Source: BL Add MS 27931 (large quarto with the Medici coat of arms) Range: c - b flat''
