It may be tricky to get your tongue round the title, but it is certainly very easy to get your ears round this rarely recorded opera. Sung in English, it is a real treat for opera lovers . The soloists are outstanding (special mention must go to Andrew Staples and Elizabeth Watts - two great young singers) as is the company as a whole. Unfortunately my budget doesn't stretch to attending Covent Garden, but from the looks of the plush booklet it was an amazing production. Certainly this recording does the Company's hard work justice. The story is typical of opera of this type full of twists and turns - an 18th century soap opera! All in all a great buy.
