Is Malcolm alone in his wish...
Vivaldi work revived 278 years on

Vivaldi wrote dozens of operas.
A long-lost opera by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi has been performed for the first time in 278 years, in the city of Prague.
Argippo was written for the Czech capital and premiered there in 1730.
But the opera - a tale of "passion, love and trickery" in an Indian maharaja's court - later disappeared without trace.
... they'd stop finding yet more bloody Vivaldi? Sphere: Related Content
