Opera Haendel Alcina
A work of enchantment, music and dance, Haendel’s Alcina only reappeared briefly in the 20th century in 1928 before experiencing a real renaissance in the 1960s. Beyond these first literal readings, how can the 21st century nourish our perception of this work?

Stage director Christof Loy, whose production of Ariodante was seen on the Monegasque stage in 2019, transforms Alcina’s magical kingdom into a metaphor for theatre. His idea, which allows him to explore a wide scope of options, is built around the singer taking on the title role, Cecilia Bartoli. Capable of expressing all the layers of identity that are superimposed, she offers all the multiplicity of her incarnation. She is the character of Alcina but also a singer anchored in her status as a diva. This concept of theatre is wonderfully enhanced by the sumptuous sets of Johannes Leiacker and the subtle costumes of Ursula Renzenbrink, enhanced by the lighting of Bernd Purkrabek. Surrounding the main character and led by the idiomatic baton of Gianluca Capuano, we find the finest performers of this repertoire, which requires absolute technical and musical mastery without forgetting a perfect theatrical sensitivity.

This is an Access Event. Access Events are specially selected for our community by the ASMALLWORLD Team and we have arranged for our members to benefit from privileged conditions when possible. This event has been organised by a third party, however, Ambassador David Holis will be present and able to assist you onsite. Please contact us at: events@asw.com or the Ambassador if you have any further questions. We hope you enjoy this event!
