Something for Early Opera Lovers

If you find the 17th century operas of Francesco Cavalli as enticing as I do, you may want to grab the opportunity to listen online to a performance of his 1657 work L’Artemisia from Le festival de Radio France et Montpellier Languedoc-Roussillon.

Click here for the Radio France site. The performance should be available on this site through the 28th of August.

The beautiful aria “Ardo, sospiro” interpolated by Raymond Leppard into his Glyndebourne realization of Cavalli’s La Calisto for Dame Janet Baker can be found here in its original work.
