The Island of the Amazons

Baroque Opera with Power Women
40
Opera
Sunday
26. June
17 h
Palace Theatre New Palace of Sanssouci

Beautiful, smart and bellicose Pulcheria, queen of the amazons, runs a tight ship on her island state. Until that is, a man is shipwrecked on her shore and manages to thoroughly confuse her. Just now as her people are mobilizing against a mighty enemy! Pallavicino’s mercurial score is in no way inferior to the joyfully crazy storytelling of the libretto: hardly ever has the story of Amor’s power weakening both strong women and tough men been told so gorgeously. Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques act as guarantors for musical delectation and internationally renowned stage director Nicola Raab applies modern means to reviving baroque pictorial worlds.

Performance in Italian with German surtitles
Length: about 2 ½ hours including one intermission


New production Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci and Les Talens Lyriques
With the generous support of Ms Aline Foriel-Destezet.
