Le Concert d’Astree
Translated as The Triumph of Time and Disillusionment, Handel’s first oratorio was one he would continue to revise throughout his life. The first version, heard here, was written and premiered in Rome in 1707 to a libretto by Cardinal Benedetto Pamphili. It tells the story of the narcissistic Bellezza, her relationship with the deceitful Piacere, and her journey towards goodness, truth and inner beauty. It famously includes Lascia la spina, the first version of an aria he recycled for his opera Rinaldo – ‘Lascia ch'io pianga’ – arguably his most famous aria.
‘The Aix festival’s first three days brought three of music’s greatest scores — Il Trionfo, Pelléas and Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte — all played and sung exquisitely and staged with stimulating seriousness.’ – The New York Times
Stage director: Krzysztof Warlikowski
