Baroque splendor in the magnificent courtyard of Schloss Eggenberg.
Alfredo Bernardini is conducting his fourth opera by Johann Joseph Fux at the styriarte festival: Psiche, an especially dramatic score from 1720. Love and lust, desire and despair, jealousy and clemency all add to the thrilling story of beautiful Psyche, the bride of Amor (Cupid), who is almost destroyed by the machinations of Venus. Raffaele Pe and Monica Piccinini lead a brilliant quintet of soloists, enveloped in the opulent sound of the Zefiro orchestra and the Arnold Schoenberg Chor. Baroque opera with everything an audience could wish for on a wonderful summer evening.
