Bayreuth Baroque Festival 2023
In its fourth edition, the BAYREUTH BAROQUE opera festival will offer two staged opera productions for the first time in autumn 2023. At the opening, artistic director Max Emanuel Cencic will present his take on Handel's Flavio, Re de' Longobardi. A political satire with which the composer took the stereotypes of the heroic opera in his stride, surprising not only the London audience of the time. With the castrato Senesino and the prima donna Francesca Cuzzoni, the London premiere in 1723 featured two of the top stars of the opera scene at the time. Exactly 300 years later, the audience can now expect an equally virtuosic ensemble led by Julia Lezhneva, Yuriy Mynenko and Max Emanuel Cencic. They are accompanied by Concerto Köln under Benjamin Bayl.
The second premiere takes us back to the birth of opera to Monteverdi's L'Orfeo, which is translated into the 21st century with transcriptions, live electronics and partly newly composed music. Rolando Villazón embodies the title role of this exciting new version.
In addition to the performances in the Margravial Opera House, the music is also taken out into the city with a series of top-class concerts. These include gala evenings with Valer Sabadus and Daniel Behle in the opera house and concerts with Véronique Gens and Bruno de Sá in historic Margravial churches. Concerto Köln, one of the most important and significant baroque orchestras in Germany will be Orchestra in Residence.
