SACCHINI: Oedipe a Colone

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Antonio Sacchini was one of the leading composers of Italian opera seria of the late 18th century. 'Oedipe ?á Colone', his last work, was extraordinarily successful, with 583 performances at the Paris Op?®ra between 1787 and 1844.

Based on Sophocles' tragedy 'Oedipus at Colonus', the second play in a trilogy that is one of the glories of Greek literature, Sacchini's opera is notable for both its high drama and tender, moving lyricism. It was championed by Berlioz who considered it to be an inspired and even sublime work.

\The production was outstanding. Getchell's voice and training are exactly right for this repertoire and Loup gave his usual flawless performance..... Paulin's Antigone was deeply appealing in voice and stage presence, and the supporting cast was well chosen and expertly prepared. It would be hard to over praise the work of music director Ryan Brown in leading the period-instrument orchestra and the excellent small chorus." 'The Washington Post' on the American premiere May 2005.

The Orchestra and Chorus of Opera Lafayette conducted by Ryan Brown recently released Gluck's 'Orf?®e ed Euridice' on Naxos: "Here, then, is a fairly rare opportunity to here the Paris version unadulterated, played by an expert band of period instruments whose open sonorities at the beginning of the overture are a joy to hear." Music Web on Gluck (8.660185-86)."
