A recent revival of interest in Vivaldi’s operas has introduced modern audiences to the adrenalin rush of his instrumentally virtuosic vocal writing. His opera Bajazet, first performed in Verona in 1735, is an extraordinary thriller set in a dark, tense, claustrophobic environment. Powerful men and strong women negotiate their relationships as desires of the heart clash with rank and duty.
The drama is brought to life in the intimate setting of the Linbury Theatre by director Adele Thomas, experienced in this repertory, following her recent productions of Berenice and Apollo and Daphne for The Royal Opera. The Royal Opera and Irish National Opera, whose production of Vivaldi’s Griselda made waves in 2019, join forces for this wonderful opportunity to discover Vivaldi – and Baroque opera – anew.
