An opera for Marilyn Horne

Perhaps the best opera written by Vivaldi, and apparently written for Marilyn Horne! The role of Orlando suits her perfectly, with all the sensational coloratura, and several arie di tempesta (tempest arias, in which the voice mimicks a storm). There are also hilraious moments (unfortunately understandable only when the opera is staged), such as when the medieval hero Orlando, who has become mad, enters announcing he is Orestes, the Greek hero (Napoleon wasn’t born yet!)
