For an expensive stage production the fundings were missing, but that did not hinder us to realize a creative small version for this baroque opera. I decided to design and implement a VIDEOMINIATURE.
Francesco Cavalli was a bright star in the Venetian Opera productions around 1637. He adapted the tradition of the popular theatre using simple musical means. He wrote expressive and vivid recitatives, unforgetable ariosi and concentrated on the characteristic of each figure, and gave each one an individual colour.
I am particularly fascinated by the fact that the music and the scene from the very beginning were very much interwoven. Scenic and musical expression went hand in hand. Much of it (also on musical material!) Arose during the rehearsals.
