Hasse was a star composer in his day, sought after by royalty, and working with the best singers and librettists. The opera, with a libretto by Giovanni Claudio Pasquini, is a story of love and duty, as the ill-fated hero Leucippo falls for the unattainable Priestess Dafne, who has taken a vow of chastity.
