I've listened to quite a few Vivaldi operas being made in the current Vivaldi renaissance, including the excellent recordings on the Naïve label.

This recording is simply top-notch. All the singers are wonderful to the point where I can't extoll one ahead of the other. The orchestral playing is sensitive, yet dramatic and couldn't be played better by any other period instrument orchestra.

While this may not be among the best of Vivaldi's operas, it still has plenty of enjoyment to offer thanks to the fantastic singing and playing. It certainly kept me listening to all 3 CD's in a row on 1st listening, which is quite rare for me, given that I'm a hyper-critical listener with a M.Perf, MM. and MA in music performance etc.

Likewise, the technical quality of these discs is amazing. The balance between voices and the orchestra is perfect, while at the same time not sounding artificial through bad microphone placement.

This is 10 star set that any Vivaldi lover will love, so get it while it's still available at an affordable price.

Arsilda was Vivaldi's third opera, written to a libretto by the prolific writer Domenico Lalli. Lalli didn't want his name associated with the libretto as he believed Vivaldi had destroyed it by his music. On the other hand it is equally clear that when the opera was first performed it wasn't the kind of work Vivaldi had in mind. The inquisitors which the Council of Ten had appointed to exert political and religious censorship over opera libretti had refused to give their permission for a performance of the original version. Vivaldi had accordingly to change it considerably. In this recording an attempt has been made to reconstruct the opera as it was originally conceived by Vivaldi. Antonio Maria Sardelli, in his programme notes, states that the original conception is considerably bolder and more interesting than the later version which was performed in the Sant'Angelo theatre in 1716.
The tribulations around the first performance didn't prevent the opera from becoming popular. It seems to have been performed in Germany and in Prague. Several manuscripts have been found all over Europe with arias from this opera, sometimes in arrangements, which were used in performances of other operas. And it looks as if Vivaldi was pleased with his work as well, as he often ‘recycled’ material from it in other vocal and instrumental works.
The story is as complicated as most libretti from the 17th and 18th century, with a lot of disguise and gender-bending. Arsilda is the queen of Pontus and is engaged to Tamese, prince of Cilicia. He is thought to be dead, and as the crown of Cilicia is reserved to a male, his place is taken by his twin sister Lisea, pretending to be her brother. That causes problems when Arsilda wants to marry.
