About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of the masterwork by Cavalli at Paris's remarkable Opéra Comique.
Hercules loves the young Iole but he is the husband of Déjanire. Iole is also loved by their son Hyllus. Who will be triumphant: Venus who promotes love, or Juno who protects fidelity?
Raphaël Pichon deploys the beauty of this extremely rare work at the head of an ideal cast. Valérie Lesort and Christian Hecq bring the freshness and fantasy to Baroque art that made the success of their Domino noir in 2018.
Sung in Italian, surtitled in French
Opera in one prologue and five acts. Libretto by Francesco Buti.
Created in Paris (Tuileries) in 1662.
