Eleven singers, baroque violins, cello, lute and harpsichord…

Ensemble OrQuesta, after the great 2017 success of Armide, return to Grimeborn to revive another masterpiece of the Baroque repertoire: Cavalli’s Xerse.

With a story that intensely revolves around jealousy and unfulfilled love, beautiful music and gripping recitatives, this dramatic comedy will keep you entertained in another minimalist production by Marcio da Silva.

 

Live music (violin, cello, lute, harpsichord), performed in Italian with English surtitles.
