Eliogabalo is an opera by the Italian composer Francesco Cavalli based on the life of the Roman emperor Heliogabalus. The author of the original libretto is unknown but it was probably reworked by Aurelio Aureli. The opera was composed in 1667 and premiered during the Carnival season of 1668 but it was withdrawn after only a few performances and replaced by another opera of the same name by Giovanni Antonio Boretti, perhaps because Cavalli's style was considered too old-fashioned. Eliogabalo was revived in 2004 by Ren Sung in Italian with surtitilesPerformers Renata Pokupic (Eliogabalo - the Roman Emperor), Claire Booth (Eritea - whom the Emperor loves), Sinead Campbell (Flavia), Yvette Bonner (Atilia), Julia Riley (whom Erita loves), James Laing (Giuliano), Tom Walker (Lenia - a nurse), Ashley Catling (Zotico - the Emperor's pimp), Joao Fernandes (Nerbulone - a jester), Francisco Javier Borda (Tiferne.
