Handel’s opera Silla is probably the most enigmatic and unknown of all his operas. The production at the Kanagawa Prefectural Music Hall, however, is not only a rare occasion, but also the world premiere of the full-stage version. Tadashi Miroku’s production is inspired by traditional Kabuki theatre, known for its highly stylised performances and often glamorous costumes and make-up. Fabio Biondi conducts “his” Europa Galante, an internationally renowned and award-winning ensemble for baroque music, performing together with a magnificent cast of singers representing the world of early music, such as Vivica Genaux and Roberta Invernizzi. “More than a common orchestra, Europa Galante looks like a guitar or multi-register harp struck by Biondi’s master hand”. (Amadeus)
