Guy de Mey
Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester
Alongside Francesco Cavalli’s opera La Giasone, L’Orontea went down in history as the most successful opera of the late 17th century.
On the occasion of the premiere in Frankfurt, the following could be read in Deutschlandradio Kultur (Natascha Pflaumbaum):
“It is a scenic production that will remain in one's memory - not because the production in Frankfurt is so shameless and trashy. Instead, it re-minds us of why Antonio Cesti's opera L'Orontea once belonged to the most beloved of all stage works. And it is well worth taking a look into the orchestra pit at this performance.”
