Il palazzo incantato


While Luigi Rossi’s Orfeo was of capital historic importance for the development of opera in 17th century France, one can hardly find any works of the composer on the schedules of the opera houses today. Only recently the rarely performed opera Il palazzo incantato was brought to Opéra de Dijon by Leonardo García Alarcón and Fabrice Murgia. The libretto, written by Cardinal Rospigliosi, later to become Pope Clement IX, was the first adaptation of Ariosto’s Orlando furioso, a masterpiece of Italian poetry with a long lyric history. Numerous singers, actors, acrobats and dancers turn Fabrice Murgia’s opulent staging of Rossi’s masterpiece into a festive celebration of total art. “A successful show, of a rare power, called to seduce the widest audience, without concession nor demagogy. An exceptional success.” Forum Opera; “a remarkable work of intelligence and powerfully poetic.” Le Monde
