Why I gave the above rating: 

My full review for the Journal of Music is at the link below but essentially I really enjoyed this opera and loved getting to know the music beforehand. Fun and fast-moving with thrilling singing and a multi-media element. Worth getting to know arias such as ‘Agitata da due venti’ and ‘Ombre Vane’. This was the first time any Vivaldi opera was performed in Ireland.
