by Jones, Dana M., D.M.A., UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN, 2009, 517 pages; 3362930

Abstract:

This dissertation involved reconstructing Vivaldi's Armida al campo d'Egitto. Since the music for Act II was missing, substitute music was found in other Vivaldi operas and used for the surviving aria texts from Armida. In addition, new recitative was composed for Act II. Included in the paper is a summary of Vivaldi's career as an opera composer as well as information on opera seria. Furthermore, the dissertation includes a description of the reconstructive process as well as the translated libretto and completed score of Armida.
