Orlando Plays Mad (Orlando Finto Pazzo) archiveVivaldi hurled every bit of his wild imagination into his first opera for Venice. The manuscript of this magical piece has been neglected ever since. An extraordinary trail of discovery leads you via Newcastle, Venice and Turin to the enchanted garden of the sorceress-queen Ersilla, including a fully staged performance of the pivotal second act. Unforgettable music performed by the cream of period instrumentalists and singers, set within a blazingly theatrical production, this is the first time the piece has been seen or heard since 1714.


Christopher Robson, Stephen Wallace, Arlene Rolph, Katheine Haataja, Louise Mott, Keel Watson, Emma Dogliani
