At Salzburg Festival, Cecilia Bartoli shines as Ariodante with her dazzling coloratura in a highly acclaimed new production by the German director Christoph Loy, who is known for his clever psychological stagings. Loy turns Handel's splendid baroque opera into an exciting and differentiated reflection on gender roles. A high-class ensemble, first and foremost a brilliant Cecilia Bartoli in the trouser role of the knight Ariodante who effortlessly switches between cheerful and lamenting virtuoso singing makes the production a true triumph. At her side perform audience favorite Rolando Villaz├│n as Lurcano and young American soprano Kathryn Lewek, praised by critics as a "true discovery" (Neue Z├╝rcher Zeitung). Gianluca Capuano at the podium of the Musiciens du Prince - Monaco "provides for elegance, richness of color and a sensitive, stirring realization of the ingenious score." (Kurier). "Cecilia Bartoli is a league of her own!" (Der Standard). "The singing was sensational" (LA Times)
