18th Century Season

As part of Radio 3's 18th Century season, a performance of Ariosti's opera La fede ne' tradimenti.

18th Century season: Ariosti's opera La fede ne' tradimenti.

Attilio Ariosti was co-director with Handel of the original Royal Academy of Music in London. He played in more than one of Handel's operas; he was a monk who, as a young man, had been given permission to be a composer and musician for the Count of Mantua and he spent the rest of his life at the most important courts of Europe before coming to London.

La fede ne' tradimenti was written in Berlin and first performed in 1702. This performance is one of only a handful since then, having had its first modern performance in the 2000s by Europa Galante.
