Nicola Porpora - Germanico in Germania Year 14 AD, the verge of the Empire. The great Roman commander Germanicus crosses the Rhine and reaches Germania, to conquer it for the emperor Tiberius. The whole story could encapsulate in the history of conquest, but a Baroque opera would not be complete if it didn't include a love story. It is played out in the arias of the Germanic chieftain, Arminius. His heart-gripping aria Parto, ti lascio, o cara can overcome the feeling of hostility between the Teuton Ersinda (played by the crystalline soprano, Julia Lezhneva) and the Roman general Cecina. However, in Germanico in Germania, a three-act work of Nicola Porpora, with a libretto by Nicola Coluzzi, the title character focuses the most attention on himself. In 1732, he was played by castrato Domenico Annibali. Today, the enchanting voice of Germanic is that of Max Emanuel Cenčić, outstanding countertenor from Croatia. In the Polish première, the opera soloists will be accompanied by the flawless orchestra Capella Cracoviensis, leading through the twists and turns of the score of the Neapolitan with verve and grace.
