Handel’s Flavio at the Musiktheater an der Wien

The Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival is delighted to present the concert performance of Handel’s magnificent opera Flavio on April 17, 2024, in the sold-out Hall E of the MuseumsQuartier as part of the Musiktheater an der Wien. The musical direction of this revival, as in the premiere series at Bayreuth Baroque 2023, is in the skilled hands of Benjamin Bayl. The high-caliber cast is led by the extraordinary coloratura soprano Julia Lezhneva as Emilia. The role of Guido is taken on by star countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic, artistic director of Bayreuth Baroque, singer, director, producer, impresario.
