La Didone Busenello, set to music by Francesco Cavalli will settle at the Theatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris.

Thursday 12, Saturday 14, Monday 16, Wednesday 18 and Friday, April 20, at 19:30, by Giovanni Francesco La Didone Busenello, set to music by Francesco Cavalli will settle at the Theatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris. A baguette, William Christie's Arts Florissants lead in a staging signed Clément Hervieu-Léger.
Presented in 1641 on stage at the Teatro San Cassiano in Venice, La Didone is from the pen of Giovanni Francesco Busenello, the famous librettist Coronation of Poppea. In La Didone, the intense pathos, comedy unbridled multiplication of melodies; different ways of singing outweigh the codes established by his mentor Monteverdi.

Representation of passion culminates in the lament, often expressed as a grave and noble passacaglia. Thus Cassandra sings his despair over the body of her lover killed in combat, Iarba sadness of being rejected by Dido, Queen of Carthage and her abandonment by Aeneas.
