Giustino (HWV 37)

In Handel’s scenic opera Giustino, the simple ploughboy Giustino experiences exciting adventures and slays a dangerous monster. By virtue of this heroism, at the end he is even crowned Emperor, and wins the hand in marriage of his predecessor’s sister.
In line with Göttingen’s puppet-theatre tradition, a scenic opera by Handel is now being staged with marionettes for the first time. For more than 200 years now, the world-famous Milan-based marionette ensemble Carlo Colla e Figli has been pulling the theatrical strings. Together with the lautten compagney BERLIN and singers, the puppeteers lend Handel’s magical music a light-footed charm, and in conjunction with the imaginative scenery make this opera a very special experience for young and old alike.

Recommended from 12 years.

Giustino is a co-production of the Halle Handel Festival, the Stadttheater Schaffhausen, Associazione Grupporiani – Mailand, Comune di Milano – Teatro Convenzionato and lautten compagney BERLIN (2017).
