Giustino (HWV 37)

Farmer wants a wife? Not at all: She is simply handed over to the title character after his victory over a dangerous monster; Giustino's heroic deed not only wins him the imperial crown, but also the hand of his predecessor's sister. For the first time in the long history of the Göttingen International Handel Festival, a Handel opera will be staged with puppets, in keeping with local puppet theater tradition. The world-famous puppet company Carlo Colla e Figli has been making puppets dance for over 200 years. Together with the lautten compagney Berlin, the fairytale-like music of the opera is imbued with a nimble charm - combined with the imaginative stage design, this is an opera experience for the whole family!
