Badoaro's libretto, based on Books of Homer's The Odyssey, narrates the vicissitudes of Ulysses after his arrival in Ithaca, following on from twenty years of journeying and attempting to make his return from the Trojan War.

Instead they bring all their experience and expertise of playing Monteverdi's madrigals, sacred music the Vespers being their current performing focus and operas to bear on a group of 'ballads' from the 17th -century, but in the company of a select quartet of improvising jazz musicians on saxophone, accordion, double bass and drums and all with the warm, soaring, story-telling vocal tones of Roberta Mameli shining through as protagonist.
