A great evening of baroque opera
Here they are again – the wonderful voices of the Graz Fux Ensemble! This year they face a particularly daunting task – saving Rome from the invasion of the Etruscans, the subject of Fux’s most monumental opera “Constanza e Fortezza”, performed in Prague in 1723. Alfredo Bernardini conducts a number of excerpts featuring all the superheroes of the Roman Republic. Cloelia plunges fearlessly into the waves of the Tiber. Horatius defends the bridge to Rome single-handed. Mucius puts his hand in the fire. Plenty of scope for a great evening of Baroque opera with the sparkling, authentic sound of Zefiro – a concertante performance in costume.
