Notes & Reviews:

"It's hardly a masterpiece, but there is plenty to admire and enjoy: two lovely arias for Amira (mezzo-soprano); a duet for Amira and Baldassare (tenor); a good aria for Ciro (alto); and a fine second-act finale. It also contains the infamous aria written entirely on the note of B-flat for a minor character, Argene (mezzo), confidante of Amira... This performance makes a good case for the opera. Anna Gemmabella is a real contralto with a rich, dark-colored voice and accurate coloratura, and she makes the trouser role of Ciro a powerful figure... a fine entertainment. Recommended." -Classics Today
