At Salzburg Festival, Cecilia Bartoli shines as Ariodante with her dazzling coloratura in a highly acclaimed new production by the German director Christoph Loy, who is known for his clever psychological stagings. Loy turns Handel’s splendid baroque opera into an exciting and differentiated reflection on gender roles.

A high-class ensemble makes the production a true triumph – first and foremost a brilliant Cecilia Bartoli in the trousers role of the knight Ariodante, who effortlessly switches between cheerful and lamenting virtuoso singing. At her side perform audience favorite Rolando Villazón as Lurcano and young American soprano Kathryn Lewek, praised by critics as “a true discovery” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung).

Gianluca Capuano at the podium of the Musiciens du Prince-Monaco provides for “elegance, richness of color and a sensitive, stirring realization of the ingenious score” (Kurier).

“Cecilia Bartoli is a league of her own!” (Der Standard)
