Xerxes – 'Ah! Chi voler fiora' 

Extracts | Handel

Disguised as a flower seller in order to deliver his master’s message, Elviro (Hagen Matzeit) makes clear his disapproval of the King’s desire to marry Romilda, a mere subject. Princess Amastre (Katarina Bradic), in her disguise as a man, hears Elviro expressing this and she is aghast at the King's plan to marry another when he promised to be hers.
