L’Oristeo

FRANCESCO CAVALLI

Friday March 11th, 2016 > 8:00PM
Sunday March 13th, 2016 > 3:00PM

With its oriental subject matter, Oristeo, when first written, launched a new form of typically Venetian-style freedom in the creative process. So it will be Marseille, the other port oriented to the East that will host the second world performance of this masterpiece, which has not been performed since the seventeenth century and its first modern re-interpretation
