There is historical evidence that trading took place between the above mentioned states and the Venetian Republic and later all the Italian Adriatic Coast. In fact, today, in the cities of Venice and Vicenza there are many that bear the name Schiavi and Schiavo which gives further testimony to the correlation between the surname and the name of these Slavic regions. Today, in spite of the intermingling with the indigenous people, the Slavic characteristics can still be observed in many of us. Some of us have blue, green or grey eyes.

Lovers of old-school Gioconda s and Aida s will be delighted to make the score's acquaintance through this performance. Who sings like this today? There are also hymn-like choral anthems and orchestral interludes to accompany exotic scenic backdrops. Gomes's big melodies are generally in the post-Verdi broad and sweeping tradition, but there are suave twists and turns that seem Hispanic, though perhaps one should say Lusitanian.
