X is for Xerxes

"Xerxes" is a baroque opera of the German composer Georg Friedrich Händel.
I think this music is familiar to most people, especially the aria "Ombra mai fu" - a wonderful timeless music.

I haven't own photos from this opera, but here are some images
of the Baroque garden in Blankenburg, Germany.
It breath the mood of this age until today.
