Antonio Vivaldi – L’Olimpiade
Irish National Opera, April–June 2024 international tour

Old partners, new partners, and a happy ending

Four young people, one an Olympic champion. Tangled relationships. Forbidden love, twice over. An unsuccessful assassination. An execution avoided. And a royal father who has to accept his children as they are.

INO continues its award-winning exploration of Vivaldi’s operas with the work which started the 20th-century revival of the composer’s works for the stage. L’Olimpiade brims with opportunities for all seven characters, showing their personalities and feelings through arias that range from the explosive and almost instrumentally virtuosic, to the slow exploration of more tender thoughts.

Running time 2 hours 40 mins with interval.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

A co-production with the Royal Opera House and Nouvel Opéra Fribourg, in partnership with Irish Baroque Orchestra.
