Carnival Theatre – summing up the Opera Rara 2017 Festival
Add date: Monday, 13 February 2017

At the source of opera lies the desire to amaze with the combination of drama, words and music, a performance that exceeds the boundaries and the magic of theatrical illusion. The new formula of the Opera Rara Festival seemed to remind us about this origin of the genre – focused equally on music and performance. The festival spanning three weeks featured various kinds and faces of opera and attracted over 4000 guests.

A subtly played suite of Matthew Locke’s music to Shakespeare’s The Tempest, concluded with Purcell’s Chaconna was an introduction to the small, yet emotionally boundless opera – Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell. The introduction to the style of a theatrical music from the 17th century – on the one hand partly recitative melody, drawing from the well-established French or even Venetian tradition (Cavalli), on the other, partly capricious, partly simplistic melodies resembling songs (often with repeating verses), based on the constant bass (ground).
