Summary
A presentation of Handel's opera, a complex love story set in Persia. The plot revolves around the competition between Serse, King of Persia, and his brother, Arsamene, over the love of Romilda. Although Serse is betrothed to the princess Amastre, he falls in love with Romilda and attempts to win her away from his brother. Romilda's sister, Atalanta, also in love with Arsamene, thickens the plot by purposely misleading the thwarted lovers in the hope of gaining Arsamene for herself
