About the opera Lo Schiavo

Lo schiavo (O escravo, The Slave) is an opera seria in four acts by the Brazilian composer Carlos Gomes. The Italian libretto was by Rodolfo Paravicini, after a play by Alfredo Taunay. The opera deals with the subject of slavery, a major concern in Brazil at the time (the institution had only been abolished by the Lei àurea in 1888).
As Béhague explains, "Lo sciavo is considered in Brazil to be the best of Gomes's operas, as it reflects a national subject which required and was given new treatment."
