We will baroque you: La Didone by Cavalli on Medici.tv

You can watch La Didone by Francesco Cavalli live from the Théâtre de Caen on medici.tv . William Christie conducts Les Arts Florissants, and a brilliant cast lead by the most wonderful Anna Bonitatibus. The same show is live broadcast on the Arts Flo Media website as well.

It starts now (here you can find the libretto with its English translation.) Enjoy!

  1. This whole thing went over my head entirely, last autumn, and I was kicking myself earlier today for not catching any of it, having forgotten all about Medici and their streams. Thank you so much for reminding me.

    I'm some nine minutes into part 2 right now, after that bleak and somewhat prosaic (I'm assuming intentionally so) Trojan act, and already I'm looking forward to listening to that wonderfully charged exchange between Iarbas and Dido all over again. I'm quite sure it won't be the last time that happens, either. The more Cavalli I hear, the more I love it - especially when Anna Bonitatibus is involved.
