George Frederic Handel - Arminio

« back

Juliusz Slowacki Theatre, (Plac Świętego Ducha 1)

: 3,5 hour, 2 breaks

When the ensemble Armonia Atenea recorded the 1736 George Frideric Handel's first opera, Arminia, for the publisher Decca, they performed the piece in full, and not - as yet - only in fragments. And it is this version that will be presented to Krakow audiences. After all, they deserve just that. It will be also the first Polish performance of this impressive work on historical instruments. The libretto takes us to the ancient Germania. This time, however, things go very different than in Porpora's Germanico... It is Arminius, the leader of the northern tribes, who defeats the Roman army. However, librettist Antonio Salvi took care not to leave listeners only in the fighting mood, and weaves in a love story to the plot. Both the mood and the proper nature of the work will be ensured by the first class soloists: countertenors - the great Max Emanuel Cenčić, Nicolas Zieliński and Victor Jimenez Diaz, soprano Lauren Snouffer, mezzo-soprano Gaia Petrone, tenor Juan Sancho and bass Pavel Kudinov. The Athens orchestra of historical instruments, Armonia Atenea, will be conducted by George Petrou.
