Naive’s Vivaldi Edition is proud to present the 15th opera, and the 50th release, in the acclaimed series. Conducted by one of the masters of baroque opera, Alan Curtis, and gathering an impressive, vocal cast from the top echelons of Baroque singing 'Catone in Utica' is one of the Venetian master’s great, late operas. Composed four years before his death and premiered at Verona in the spring of 1737, 'Catone' inaugurated Vivaldi's third and last opera season. The Red Priest's farewell to the Teatro dell’Accademia Filarmonica was to resemble the crowning piece of a fire-works display.

This special project gathers the finest arias from the operas released in the naive Vivaldi Edition, to commemorate the 50th title in the series 'Catone in Utica'. Most of those arias were real discoveries, at the time of release, and have become hits that helped to re-establish Vivaldi as a major opera composer. To name a few, Sol da te from Orlando furioso by Philippe Jaroussky, Alma Op-pressa from La fida ninfa by Sandrine Piau, Ho il cor già lacero from Griselda by Marie-Nicole Lemieux, or Gelosia from Ottone in villa by Julia Lezhneva.
