Alessandro nell’Indie tells the story of Alexander the Great’s campaign in India, of his defeat of the Indian king Porus (Poro), and of his infatuation with an Indian queen, Cleophes (Cleofide). It is a vehicle for gorgeously over-the-top bravura singing as the characters confront each other, deceive each other, reproach each other, plead with each other.

Pacini himself claimed to have composed over 100 operas and, although modern estimates would be more conservative (since several of the works he listed were revisions, and some of them more strictly oratorios and cantatas than operas), even the most rigorous estimate would put the total at over 70.
