Notes & Reviews:

"Christophe Rousset has an alchemist's touch when it comes to the obscurer reaches of 18th-century repertoire, as this performance of Tretta's innovatory 'opera seria,' premiered in St. Petersburg in 1772, proves once more. Dazzlingly played and sung by a virtuoso cast (especially Maria Bayo in the title role), this is a compelling account of a rich, if dramatically flawed, work that nevertheless deserves to be less of a rarity." -Critic's Choice, BBC Music
