During the Carnival of Venice in 1637, a play 'rappresentata in musica' was opened to the public for the first time - a success. Opera was born and spread like wildfire. Venice had the largest number of theatres in the world. In 1677, the Teatro Sant'Angelo opened it's doors on the campo of the same name. Tiny, chaotic, cheap and extremely productive, it was renowned for it's musicians and it's sets. This effervescence owes much to the figure of Vivaldi who, from 1705 onwards, regularly premiered his operas there and acted (with his father) as impresario. His own Arsilda, L'incoronazione di Dario and La verità in cimento triumphed there, but he also invited composers such as the young Fortunato Chelleri and Giovanni Alberto Ristori. The mezzo-soprano Adèle Charvet and her partners in Le Consort pay tribute to all these composers with a flamboyant programme that mixes famous arias and world premieres - no fewer than twelve of them!
