From Dijon Opera, Il Palazzo Incantato

Read

Pour sauver son protégé d’un destin funeste, un magicien enferme chevaliers et dames dans un palais enchanté et labyrinthique jusqu’à leur en faire perdre la raison.

Le premier opéra de Luigi Rossi, qui ne ne compte pas moins de seize solistes, double et triple chœurs à 6 et 12 voix ainsi que de nombreux ballets, marque le dernier éclat de l’opéra romain avant que la Ville Éternelle ne le délaisse pour longtemps. Pour le chef d’orchestre argentin Leonardo García Alarcón, qui a redécouvert cet opéra oublié pendant près de 380 ans dans la Bibliothèque du Vatican, Il Palazzo incantato est « le chaînon manquant dans l’histoire de l’opéra et la métaphore de nos vies ». « On savait Leonardo Garcia Alarcon magicien, le voici passé prestidigitateur. » (Le Monde)

En streaming sur OperaVision à partir du 29 janvier 2021 à 19h00 CET et disponible pendant 2 mois

[ORFEO]

Amsterdam

The press is talking about a "miracle".

After the world premiere of Verdi's opera Otello, a young cellist - future conductor Arturo Toscanini - came home in the middle of the night and drummed his mother out of bed. "Otello is a masterpiece," he shouted. "On your knees! And say: "Viva Verdi."

Our excitement was a bit like that, Saturday after Leonardo García Alarcón's L'Orfeo de Monteverdi. The ensemble and the soloists revealed the genius of the drama: they took us to the heart of the music. There was no escape, because for more than two hours the reality consisted only of Monteverdi's world, encompassing past, present and future.

Valerio Contaldo's brilliant tenor expressed the double character of Orpheus: on the one hand the lively and provocative cynic, on the other the mournful and warm-blooded lover.
But what touched the most was Cappella Mediterranea, which embodied as rarely does the hells, earth and sky above Monteverdi's Orpheus.

BUZZ

Les Indes Galantes,

Read

The encounter of Krump and Rameau's music imagined by Clément Cogitore is at the origin of our show Les Indes Galantes at the Paris Opera.
This is not the first time that urban dances were mixed with baroque or classical music.
But the density, energy, tribality, strength of this version and its incredible impact say so many things about our time...

REVIEW

Il Giasone

Read

Dans la fosse, la Cappella Mediterranea et Leonardo García Alarcón suivent un flux musical tout en finesse, légèreté et alacrité, qui répond idéalement aux impératifs de la partition. Ils parviennent à rendre, dans une saveur instrumentale à la fois ronde et verte, la dimension ludique, la fraîcheur mélodique et les tensions harmonique de l’ouvrage. Le drame et l’ivresse se voient fusionnés avec art.
