    L’Olimpiade was premiered in Venice in 1734 at the Teatro Sant’Angelo, with a libretto by the poet Metastasio based on Herodotus. It was an immediate and resounding success. It is set near the town of Olympia on the day of the games, but the libretto is primarily a vehicle for an abundance of melodies in which betrayal of friendship and thwarted love jostle for position. It is one of Vivaldi’s finest works, in which the ever-fresh musical writing takes full advantage of the wide array of dramatic situations. Arias expressing the affetti of the souls of the various characters are outstanding and are set to music in an extremely rich and highly-coloured melodic style. Under the baton of Jean-Christophe Spinosi, a master of Vivaldi, we can enjoy the experience of rediscovering an athletic Jakub Józef Orliński, who is equally at home with vocal exercises and breakdancing. In these impromptu Olympics, who will emerge as the victor of the choral games?
