"When they dusted off this archetype of Venetian opera in 1993. Rene Jacobs and Herbert Wernicke probably had no idea that their recreation was destined for worldwide acclaim. But then La Calisto (1651) still has plenty to say to today's audiences: first of all because it shows the gods as falible, indeed lustful: and secondly, because it is served here by an absolute gem of a production, and by a musical realisation that manages to be both inventive and rigorous. Constantly mingling nobility and triviality, comedy and tragedy, this Calisto juxtaposes Monteverdian declamation and new-fangled aria as effortlessly as it juggles the divine and the earthly."--Container

Elena at the prestigious Aix-en-Provence Festival: Cavalli's opera staged for the first time in 350 years! Francesco Cavalli and the librettist-impresario Giovanni Faustini's collaboration gave birth to 10 operas. When he died in 1651, Faustini left several unfinished libretti, among which the opera Elena. Niccolo Minato completed it and a few years later, in 1659, the opera was premiered in Venice. Since then and in spite of its great success, the opera had never been performed anymore ... until 2013! The Aix-en-Provence Festival brought back this masterpiece to life with a brand new staging by Jean-Yves Ruf. The opera is a mythological drama which tells the story of Helen, whose stunning beauty caused passionate troubles. This program was initially broadcast live from the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence on medici.tv on the 11th of July 2013
