Handel's three-act opera "Sosarme, Re di Media" (HWV 30) was performed for the first time in 1732 with star castrato Senesino in the title role. The plot centres on a family conflict over the succession to the throne. This edition also contains the recitative composed for the early two-act version "Fernando, Re di Castiglia" of which only a fragment remains. In addition, the early versions of three arias which do not belong to “Fernando” are included.

The vocal score with its well-presented layout is based on the "Halle Handel Edition" (HHA) and contains the original Italian text as well as a singable German translation.
