  • In 1649, Francesco Cavalli, who was the most important opera composer of the time in Venice, turned the Greek myth of Jason and Medea into an opera for the libertine and hedonistic city of Venice and filled it with comic scenes, pathetic lamenti, scenes of madness or sleep, dressed-up characters.

    Abounding with magnificent musica, Il Giasone was the most often performed opera of its century, with 18 performances in Venice and 24 identified productions unitl 1681: a must! Today still, the plot of this 17th century best-seller and its splendid music work perfectly.

    For this production created at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, Leonardo García Alarcón gives the title role to Valer Sabadus, the sensitive and virtuoso interpreter of a character who is the prey of two women trying to devour him, also surrounded by strong characters on the servant side: an outrageous stammerer and a nurse interpreted by Dominique Visse! This major work lives again through the talent its staging by Serena Sinigalia, and promises an evening of irresistible music!
