This little gem is one of the few recordings of Haydn's last opera, this version of Orfeo ed Euridice (or L'anima del Filosofo) features Cecilia Bartoli and Uwe Heilmann in the lead roles. The two disc recording was released in 1997.

"Cecilia Bartoli is in her element, passionately expressive, creating a larger-than-life character. Euridice's death scene, Orfeo's acony of lament, and a brilliant coloratura aria for the Sybil (dazzlingly done by Bartoli) bring other high points." - The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs and DVDs

The opera is Pinchgut Opera's 2010 Sydney production
