Cublai, gran kan de’ Tartari (German: Kublai, Great Khan of the Tartars) is a “dramma eroicomico” in two acts by Antonio Salieri to a text by Giovanni Battista Casti, which was not performed during Salieri’s lifetime.

The premiere in a German translation by Cornelia Boese took place in June 1998 at the Mainfranken Theater Würzburg under the direction of Johan van Slageren. The virtuoso role of the Bengali Princess Alzima was taken on by the now internationally sought-after coloratura soprano Diana Damrau. In November 2007, Virgin Records released her album with arias by Salieri, Mozart and Righini, on which she also performs two arias from Cublai. The overture to Cublai can now also be found on concert programs, for example played by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and the London Mozart Players.

Salieri’s heroic-comic opera was written between 1786 and 1788. The satirical libretto Casti bluntly describes the grievances at the Russian court of Peter the Great. Due to a surprising alliance between Austria and Russia in 1788, Salieri was no longer allowed to see his work on the opera stage; censorship made performance impossible.

In 2024, the Musiktheater an der Wien brought the work to the stage for the first time in Italian, edited and staged by Martin G. Berger. Christoph Wagner-Trenkwitz appeared as Antonio Salieri, Carlo Lepore sang the title role, Kublai’s son Lipi sang Lauranne Olivia, Marie Lys was Princess Alzima and Alasdair Kent sang Kublai Khan’s nephew Timur
