Medea in Corinto



Giovanni Simone Mayr's "Medea in Corinto" is "the most absolutely
amazing opera discovery in decades" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).
Mayr, born in Germany in 1763, became one of the most important
composers of Italian opera between Mozart and Rossini. At the Bavarian
State Opera, director Hans Neuenfels stages this tragedy of betrayed love,
lust for power and murderous hatred as a fascinating political thriller.
Providing a vigorous orchestral support for soprano Nadja Michael as
Medea and Ramón Vargas as her ex-husband Giasone, conductor Ivor
Bolton plumbs the depths of Mayr's rich score.
