Bayreuth Baroque 2021 – Programme and booking available at the end of June

In 2021, the International Festival of the Opera Seria BAYREUTH BAROQUE will take place from 01st to the 14th September for the second time. In addition to the revival of Nicola Porpora‘s “Carlo il Calvo”, another opera by the same composer will bring the jewel that is the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth to life again. The artistic director of the festival, stage director and countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic will also, as much can be revealed, play a leading role in this opera. George Petrou will take over the musical direction with the orchestra Armonia Atenea.

The Bayreuth Baroque Festival is particularly pleased to present three concerts with  internationally celebrated stars. The virtuosic countertenor Franco Fagioli will give a concert of arias by Leonardo Vinci, the antipode of Porpora. George Petrou will conduct the evening with his orchestra Armonia Atenea. Under the title “Anima Aeterna”, countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński and the ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro under the direction of Francesco Corti go on a search for baroque gems. The soprano Simone Kermes sings “Canzonetta d’amore” accompanied by the Amici Veneziani.

Due to current events, the complete program of the festival will be announced at the end of June. Subsequently, ticket sales will start.
