L'Olimpiade: The Opera
Label: Naïve
Released: May 29, 2012

Naïve Classique presents a classical music mashup of Olympic proportions! In the eighteenth century, 1,300 years after the last Olympic Games in ancient times, the Olympic theme became highly fashionable. Many composers based operas on the libretto L'Olimpiade by Metastasio. This unique recording brings together sixteen of the "Olympian" composers who set the libretto to music, following the full libretto of the opera through different pieces of each composer's setting. It includes 16 arias in their world premiere recordings.
