Product Notes

Recorded at the Teatro Malibran of La Fenice in Venice as part of the celebrations of the third centenary of Galuppi’s birth, this sumptuous production is the first performance of L’Olimpiade in modern times, and a world premiere recording. Galuppi (1706-1785) was considered the leading exponent of Venetian comic opera, if not its absolute creator, but it was not until recently that his non-comic operas have begun to receive serious attention. One of the lesser known renditions of Pietro Metastasio’s original 1733 libretti, this deeply emotional opera takes place in Olympia during the games and focuses on a love triangle between two best friends Megacle and Licida, and the object of their joint affection, Aristea. The Orchestra Barocca di Venezia, conducted by baroque expert Andrea Marcon, plays on original instruments from the 18th century.
