Dove È Amore È Gelosia: National Theatre Prague (Vojtech Spurnÿ) (2011)
Recorded live at The National Theatre, Prague Summer 2011. Rebellious servants, capricious lovers, cross-dressing farce and a happy ending: the fast paced action of this comic Baroque opera had all the ingredients to please the self-confessed low-brow taste' of an Austro-German prince, who commissioned Giuseppe Scarlatti for a piece to celebrate his son's wedding. This is the opera's first revival in modern times, and it takes place in the very same Baroque theatre, impeccably restored to its original glory, which hosted the first performance. With a cast of young singers drawn from Prague's National Theatre and a stylish period-instrument ensemble, this vivid reconstruction will delight audiences as much today as it did the aristocratic guests at Ceský Krumlov in 1768.
