- The Vienna Chamber Opera leads a masterpiece of baroque opera with minimal resources to maximum success.
A cellar at the meat market. Six young singers, who would adorn any opera stage in the world, perform an opera by Vivaldi & Co. To do this, they play a play about it on the meta level: This is Krystian Lada's production at the Chamber Opera. It quickly turns out to be one of the most enjoyable opera performances of the year and holds up this high standard up to the triumphant final sextet. The staging of an opera as a recording of the same is strongly reminiscent of Christof Loys Salzburg's "Frau ohne Schatten", but without its overloaded complexity - which is good for the performance and also enables a corona-related non-stop implementation.
