Diva Showdown

Two Prima Donnas Are One Too Many


The most beautiful arias by Georg Friedrich Händel & Giovanni Battista Bononcini for hostile superstars Faustina Bordoni & Francesca Cuzzoni


Marie Perbost soprano
Claire Lefilliâtre soprano

Stéphane Fuget Musical Direction

Theatre in Händel’s London was fun – fans would get into brawls meanwhile the objects of their desire –  sopranos Faustina Bordoni and Francesca Cuzzoni – had a go at each other on stage. In fact, they were both genius singers and the greatest composers would create tailor-made arias for them. The divine soundtrack to this operatic thriller is presented by Les Epopées form France, considered to be among the most exciting original sound newcomers. Two worthy successors lend their voices to the baroque divas and do the vocal showdown. Is this where friendship ends? Definitely not because the Music Festival Potsdam Sanssouci’s grand finale still has a long way to go!
