Jean-Baptiste Stuck: Polidore, 1720
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
On the programme for this evening is the French-Italian composer Jean-Baptiste Stuck's forgotten tragédie en musique Polidore as interpreted by outstanding artists specialising in historically informed performance, the Purcell Choir and Orfeo Orchestra, conducted by György Vashegyi. The plot to this work consisting of a prologue and five acts is an intricate one, featuring a sinister Thracian-Greek alliance, a moving love angle, and the tragedy of a Thracian king bent on revenge — all accompanied by divine sighs and earth-shaking warnings.
The production is a collaboration between the Orfeo Music Foundation and the Centre de musique baroque de Versailles.
