Live streamLive stream

Concert from the International Gluck Festival. Gluck's 'Antigono' is a three act opera seria to a Italian libretto by Pietro Metastasio. The Macedonian King Antigono and his banished son Demetrio are both loved by the Egyptian princess Berenice. Antigono’s daughter, Ismene, loves Alessandro, who is the enemy of Macedonia. The opera portrays a violent struggle between Antigono and Alessandro. Typical for opera seria plots, identities and the emotional relations between the characters become confused. Everything is resolved through the forgiveness of King Antigono, and the opera seria ends happily.

Performers: Anna Kasyan, soprano, Francesca Lombardi Mazzulli, soprano, Samuel Mariño, soprano, Mauro Peter, tenor, Valer Sabadus, countertenor, Terry Wey, countertenor.

Händelfestspielorchester Halle. Conductor: Michael Hofstetter.
