The opera Poro, re dell'Indie, HWV 28 is an opera seria by George Frideric Handel.

Its title may be translated to Poro, King of the Indians.

It is an opera in three acts.

The Italian-language libretto was adapted from Alessandro nell'Indie by Metastasio.

The story is based on Alexander the Great's encounter with King Porus in 326 BC.

This libretto had already been set to music by Leonardo Vinci in 1729 and by Antonio Vivaldi.

In fact, this libretto was used as the text for more than sixty operas throughout the 18th century.

In Handel's Poro, re dell'Indie, the emphasis is shifted from Alessandro to Poro and his wife Cleofide and to the relationship between the two .

The opera was first performed in London on February 2, 1731.
