Long lost in the archives of Venice’s Biblioteca Marciana, Pallavicino's opera takes place in the legendary Fortunates Isles located in the Atlantic Ocean, a winterless earthly paradise inhabited by the heroes of Greek mythology. After their defeat by the Greeks at the battle of Thermodon, the Amazons migrated to the Fortunates Isles. One day, a Moorish corsair is shipwrecked on the shore… and everything changes.
