This set is truly a marvel of score and performance. While including some of the Baroque opera standards, such as Dido and Aeneas, Rinaldo, L'Orfeo and Poppea, this set also includes some absolute rarities. We get to see the beginnings of opera in Vecchi's L'Amfiparnaso, a madrigal comedy, and experience Baroque opera across Europe by country; Cavalli's La Calisto, Lully's Atys, Campra's Idomenee, Keiser's Croesus, and Graun's Cleopatre e Cesare just to list some of the gems contained inside this amazing edition. The liner notes are wonderful and include essays on the evolution of Opera by Denis Morrier, Catherine Kintzler and Charles Johnston, as well as a chronology of the Operas in the set. Many of the recordings in this set have been award winners with Diapassion, Gramophone, and the like. This is truly a set not to be missed!
