Irish National Opera continues its award-winning exploration of Vivaldi’s operas with L’Olimpiade.


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 that 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.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

“…with delicately floated high notes, the singing of soprano Rachel Redmond has infinite grace.”– THE INDEPENDENT [UK]
