Only the first and third acts have survived of Armida. The second act on the present recording is a reconstruction substituting other opera arias by Vivaldi that fit the various situations. Quite successful during Vivaldi’s, it was performed in numerous theatres.

This is the 2nd opera recording of Rinaldo Alessandrini in the Vivaldi Edition, 7 years after L’Olimpiade.
