About

La Didone is one of the earliest operas in existence, and Ercole amante, at the time of its premiere, was the grandest show ever performed in Europe. By contrast, prior to its revival in the very Baroque gem of a theatre that hosted its premiere, the courtly farce Dove č amore č gelosia was virtually unknown, as was the hitherto neglected Deidamia, Handel’s final Italian opera. The 18th-century Baroque theatre machinery at Drottningholm lends authenticity to Rameau’s Zoroastre, as does the period Pergolesi Theatre at Jesi to the performance of Adriano in Siria. Sally Matthews is ‘captivating’ as Deidamia (New York Times), Anna Bonitatibus is an uncompromisingly intense Didone, and Luca Pisaroni’s Hercules is by turns heroic and melodious. Specialist ensembles, including Concerto Köln, Les Arts Florissants and Les Talens Lyriques, bring apt nuance and colour to these sumptuous productions showcasing worthy masterworks of the Baroque.
