Hailing from Parma, Francesco Corselli (1705-1778) was one of the leading figures in Spanish musical life during the mid-eighteenth century. Always linked to the courtly setting, he was at the helm of the Royal Chapel, formed part of the Royal Chamber and composed a substantial number of operas. From his privileged position, he played a fundamental role in the stylistic renovation of the liturgical repertory and in the definitive consolidation of Italian opera in Spain. This series, which coincides with the production of his Achille in Sciro at the Teatro Real, explores the musical genres associated with his activity at the palace.
