L'Olympiade

My review of the Venice Baroque Orchestra's pasticcio version of Metastasio's L'Olympiade, with music by 16 composers from Caldara to Cherubini, is on the Opera Today website.


'As drama, the performance was lacking. The programme probably works better as a CD than as a concert performance of an opera. But Marcon and his cast gave us a string of extremely fine performance which just made one sit up and listen.'
