Notes & Reviews:
Josef Mislivec?ek (1737-81), dubbed the "Divine Bohemian" by his contemporaries and a friend of Mozart, premiered his version of L'Olimpiade, in traditional Italian operatic style and with a libretto quite faithful to Metastasio's original text, in 1778 in Naples, a city in which he experienced great audience appreciation. On November 23 and 25, 2012, the Teatro Comunale in Bologna hosted the first modern-day revival of the opera produced by the Scuola dell'Opera Italiana. Oliver von Dohnanyi conducts the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro Comunale di Bologna.

The performance is a delight as well. This is immediately followed by more fireworks. Is Watanabe (Clistene) a tenor or a counter-tenor? He seems to be both at once. There is a peculiar androgyny in his voice. Vistoli (Licida) is a counter-tenor, lovely in tone, graceful in musicality. The purity of Tanka's soprano is a fine complement to Chakar's. When the two blend is seamless harmony in the Act 1 concluding duet ('Ne' giorni tuoi felice') it's musical magic. The chorus is spot-on, sometimes dividing into two opposing groups. The orchestra is a star in itself, merrily bouncing along with great joy and enthusiasm.
