Well I want to hear some but I don't know where to begin. I heard agitata da due venti and it was amazing.

I'm slowly discovering Vivaldi as an opera composer myself, and I think he was pretty good.
Check my earlier comments on "Orlando Furioso" on the old forum - I'll repost them on the current Vivaldi Recordings thread.

Strangely enough no! I was expecting it but it wasn't there. There is an aria that sounds like the 4 seasons spring though :)
