Giovanni Antonini

Long thought to be Vivaldi's first opera, Ottone in villa ("Otho on vacation") had its premier in 1713 in the small public theatre of Vicenza, the Teatro delle Garzerie. By this time Antonio Vivaldi was already a celebrated violin virtuoso and teacher at La Pietà. Nonetheless, Ottone remains one of his earliest.

Ottone in villa bears witness to Vivaldi's mastery in his first productive period (in 1711 he had published his Op. 3 concerti, L'estro armonico), and is a precious example of Venetian operatic culture. The drama is a satire of Imperial Rome's high society, concentrating on amorous intrigues among an attractive group of young characters in a pastoral setting. Such a light-hearted entertainment would have been fitting for the noble Venetians who often vacationed near Vicenza.

Many of the lovely, melodic arias in this work were reused by Vivaldi in other operas later in his career, proof of their immediate success in this, his first drama per musica.

Ottone was revived in 1729 in Treviso where it was performed at the Teatro Dolfin.

The story unfolds around five characters:

Cleonilla
mistress of Emperor Ottone

Ottone
Roman Emperor

Caio Silio
a handsome young man loved by Cleonilla

Decio
confident of Ottone

Tullia
a foreign lady in love with Caio but aban doned by him for Cleonilla, disguised as Ostilio, page to Cleonilla and loved by her
