    Eliogabalo : Opera by Francesco Cavalli at Palais Garnier, Paris

    Palais Garnier, the leading opera house in the city of Paris, opens to view a new show of Eliogabalo, a baroque opera by Francesco Cavalli, from September 14 to October 15, 2016.

    Eliogabalo was composed, in 1667, by the Italian composer of the early Baroque period Francesco Cavalli (1602 – 1676). However, until now, it is not known who wrote the libretto of this opera.
