    Saturday November 29th - Giasone by Francesco Cavalli

    Bernard Clarke brings us an early operatic exploration by René Jacobs in his award winning interpretation of Francesco Cavalli’s Giasone recently released on the Harmonia Mundi label.  Loosely based on the story of Jason and the golden fleece, the opera was premiered at the Teatro San Cassiano, Venice, on January 5th 1649 during carnival, and it proved the single most popular opera of the 17th century. Countertenor Michael Chance sings Giasone and René Jacobs conducts Concerto Vocale.
