" Tolomeo " was Handel's last opera for the Royal Academy of Music in London . Composed between March and 19 April, 1728, it was premiered on 30 April. Handel revived the opera several times further: In 1730 in an extensive revision, with seven performances, and in 1733 with four performances. The historical background is the dispute between Cleopatra III and her younger son Ptolemaio X Alexander I ( Tolomeo ). in 110 BC Cleopatra drove Tolomeo out of Egypt. She died, irreconciled to him, in 101 BC. This vocal score is based on the "Halle Handel Edition" (vol. II/20), published in 2000. The main part contains the version from the premiere.
