Recorded live of the premiere series Oper Frankfurt, February-Mach 2015.


The premiere von L'Orontea took place in 1656 in Innsbruck at the court of Archduke Ferdinand Karl, grandson of Duke Ferdinand of Tuscany, who at that time was the patron of the first attempts of the art form of opera in Florence. Alongside Francesco Cavalli's opera "La Giasone", "L'Orontea" went down in history as the most successful opera of the late 17th century. On the occasion of the premiere in Frankfurt, the following could be read in Deutschlandradio Kultur: "It is a scenic production that will remain in one's memory - not because the production in Frankfurt is so shameless and trashy. Instead, it reminds us of why Antonio Cesti's opera "L'Orontea" once belonged to the most beloved of all stage works. And it is well worth taking a look into the orchestra pit at this performance." --- arkivmusic.com


All the confusion starts from a strong statement: the Egyptian queen Orontea has proclaimed that she will never fall in love. Clearly, that was never going to work, the proof of which is played out over three and half hours of madcap action riddled with erotic games: Venetian Carnival opera was never a child full of woe. Similarly comic love entanglements were not to be found until Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, the devices of which can already be seen in L’Orontea: false identities, cunningly crafted letters and babies stolen at birth, the same method of proof of princely birth by means of an amulet. In the course of the action, just about everyone loves someone else, but after many turbulent struggles, everything comes right in the happy (of course) ending, and Love and Philosophy come out of the dispute in the Prologue as the happy winners. ---bachtrack.com
