RAI3 dipped into its archives this weekend and turned up three operas of Cimarosa. Two of them are one acters: La Baronessa Stramba and L'impresario in Angustie, the third comes in two acts: La Vanitā Delusa or Il Mercato di Malmantile.

I'll be uploading these operas separately, and here's the first, La Baronessa Stramba, a comic opera. Libretto is by Pasquale Mililotti, with revisions by Renato Parodi. It was first performed during the 1786 carnival at Naple's Teatro Nuovo. It's also known as Il credulo and Il credulo deluso.

The recording is of a lively performance given in Naples, 30 September 1958 (it isn't the 1956 Milan recording issued on Archipel in other words).

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't the slightest idea what's going on in this caper, and a synopsis isn't readily available. Perhaps some of OperaShare's members could help here.

The whole thing lasts just a minute over an hour. I haven't split it up into scenes etc, since I wouldn't know where to start. I am providing a sample for each of the operas however (in lower grade mp3 audio).

All download links and files are emailed to you within 72 business hours of your order. Please note: If you are charged shipping for any MP3, please let us know and we will refund you immediately! Also, almost all CD's are available as MP3's.
