From November 2nd to 10th, Nancy’s Opéra Nationale de Lorraine will house five performances of the opera “Artaserse”, by Leonardo Vinci (1690-1730), featuring musical direction by Diego Fasolis. The work is a drama in three acts, written to a libretto by Pietro Metastasio, and is considered to be the composer’s masterpiece. The show will feature the Concerto Köln and an excellent cast composed of five countertenors and a tenor. The production features stage direction by Silviu Purcarete, and will be performed shortly in Vienna, Lausanne, Paris, and Köln. A new recording of the work has recently been released, including most of these performers and conductor Diego Fasolis.
