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
