Lovers of Baroque opera did not have to wait long for another concert in the Opera Rara cycle. After the January presentation of the opera by Hasse came the long-awaited Polish premiere of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s Adriano in Siria. It was highly anticipated for many reasons, one of which was the triumphant December performance of Pergolesi’s work at the famous Royal Opera at Versailles by Capella Cracoviensis, led by Jan Tomasz Adamus, with outstanding soloists, including leading Argentine countertenor Franco Fagioli, Italian mezzo-soprano Romina Basso and Spanish tenor Juan Sancho. A recording of Adriano in Siria, made in Krakow in August last year with the same line-up of artists, will be released soon by the prestigious London-based Decca label.Watch an exclusive documentary of the Piramo e Tisbe concert!

The new year has begun, bringing with it the return of the Opera Rara cycle, which has come back not only with new music, but with new energy. In the opening of the new opera season, we heard Johann Adolf Hasse’s exceptional work Piramo e Tisbe. The opera was presented to the audience gathered in the Theatrical Hall of the ICE Kraków Congress Centre by Krakow favourite, prominent violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi with his ensemble, Europa Galante. Appearing beside them was a trio of excellent soloists: famous American mezzosoprano Vivica Genaux, one of the main stars of Italian opera Desirée Rancatore, as well as one of the most promising tenors of the young generation, Italian Emanuele D’Aguanno.The Polish premiere of Pergolesi’s Adriano in Siria in March in Krakow
