About

Niccolò Jommelli was an innovative superstar among composers in his day, and is now recognised as a precursor of the new Viennese Classical taste in music. With its intense story of love, life and death, Il Vologeso sets one of the most powerful libretti written for the European opera stage. This critically acclaimed production is considered to be its first staged performance for over two centuries, and the highly successful opera directors Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito have revived a Baroque gem with their exciting, present-day staging.

To mark the 300th anniversary of Jommelli’s birth, Stuttgart Opera staged the work for the first time in almost 250 years.

The work is staged by Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito. In 2002 and 2012 they were elected “Directorial Team of the Year” and received the Deutsche Theaterpreis ‘Der Faust’ in 2006 (Doktor Faust) and in 2012 (Die glückliche Hand / Osud) in the category of “Best Opera Staging”.

Gabriele Ferro is an exceptionally experienced conductor who works at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples. He has recorded for DG, Sony and EMI and conducted at Covent Garden in London, Deutsche Oper in Berlin and at opera houses in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc.
