Performances of Galuppi’s 100 or more operas are very, very rare today, so a warm welcome to this recording of a 1750 comic opera set on a Pacific island governed by women. Galuppi’s score sounds, in places, somewhat Gluckian, the cast is uniformly excellent and Diego Fasolis conducts briskly. Charles Osborne
