Vivaldi: Orlando finto pazzo
Orlando finto pazzo is an opera in three acts composed by Antonio Vivaldi to a libretto by Grazio Braccioli. The plot is based on an episode in Matteo Boiardo's unfinished epic poem Orlando Innamorato. The second of Vivaldi's known operas, Orlando finto pazzo premiered in November 1714 at the Teatro Sant'Angelo in Venice. Vivaldi acted as impresario as well as composer. Apparently the opera did not meet much approval from the audience and was billed only on few dates, just to be replaced, on 1 December, by a revival of Giovanni Alberto Ristori’s Orlando furioso, a work that the Vivaldi "impresa" had very successfully staged in 1713.
