    A NIGHT AT THE CHATEAU IN NOVÉ HRADY – IL FARNACE

    The 10th Anniversary of the Festival Stagione in the enchanting setting of the Rococo château of Nové Hrady. Period entertainment, music, dance, and an interpretation of the opera Il Farnace by Antonio Vivaldi.

    “Vivaldi’s opera was presented on many European stages during the first third of the 18th century, with five different versions of the libretto from these performances having been preserved. Similarly, we have multiple versions of the score; unfortunately, however, none are from the premiere in Venice. For our production, we started with the score that was created for the presentation of Il Farnace in Pavia and Ferrara.”
