John Blow: Venus and Adonis (Masque)
Jacob van Eyck: Doen Daphne d’over schoone Maeght, improvisation
The little amorini are already really excited. They are supposed to tell the goddess Venus what they have learned at the school of love today. This delightful scene is at the heart of John Blow’s enchanting opera “Venus and Adonis”, whose protagonists you can also find wandering around some paintings at Schloss Eggenberg. Thomas Höft and Neue Hofkapelle Graz go on a soulful journey through the World Heritage site in Graz, accompanied by longing baroque music and peppered with acrobatics and improvisation.
