The Opera Lafayette and Ryan Brown can pretty much do no wrong in my book, and I've become a big fan in the last couple of months. The Washington D.C.-based company is always looking for less well known baroque and classical repertory, and this interesting choice is a spirited smaller opera by a composer, fairly successful in his time, who is now somewhat ignored. I won't say that this work, supposedly Sacchini's best (based, of course, on Sophocles' "Oedipus at Colonus") will spark a Sacchini revival, but it's a quality piece, superior to Haydn, equal to Salieri, but not exactly Da Ponte Mozart. It's a bit frothy for the Sophoclean subject, but that's not surprising for a 1787 opera (tragically, Sacchini dindn't live to see the premiere in Paris). For me the work's biggest problem is the lack of any memorable arias, though the soloists do quite well with what they have. As usual, material such as this on Naxos is a titanic bargain.

2cds of interesting late-Classical opera from Opera Lafayette under Ryan Brown; generally an all-round success. Following on from an excellent Gluck "Orphee et Euridice" French version also on Naxos (and highly recommended), Opera Lafayette shed light on a definite unknown - which is worth lighting up. Period instruments used, and good singing.

Recommended.

I bought this recording because I saw several La Fayette Opera performances at the University of Maryland. The ansamble usually presents lesser known early operatic works and is always excellent. If you like early opera, you can't go wrong with this one. Highly recommended and enjoyable.
