Concert in two parts, with Hungarian, English, and same-language subtitles
Since the spread of historically informed performance and replica instruments, it is not the opera orchestras that are considered to play the most adequate 18th and early 19th century music. But who could fill a large space more flexibly and with more body to the sound than the OPERA Orchestra, able to restrain the power of their Romantic instruments as necessary? We do not play early music solely for its overflowing richness, but we also learn from it and create numerous opera projects based on it. Now the Festival of Myths will provide a new opportunity to discover what a modern instrumental ensemble can add to the music of old ages written on mythological topics.
