Most of Vivaldi’s 50 or so operas proved a success during the composer’s lifetime. They soon faded from view following his death in 1741.

Fabio Bonizzoni and La Risonanza, in company with Roberta Invernizzi, have played an important role in the recent revival of interest in Vivaldi’s stage works. They have also been acclaimed worldwide for their enchanting performances and recordings of Handel’s music.
