Cancelled | Festival operas at the cinema
Imeneo (HWV 41)
Since 2009, the Göttingen International Handel Festival has been recording its festival operas and presenting them as “Public Viewing” during the respective festival period. Experience four of these opera productions with and without a happy end in the art house cinemas Lumière and Méliès.
The duo Sigrid T'Hooft and Stephan Dietrich brought true costume festivals to the stage of the Deutsches Theater Göttingen. At Imeneo, it was not only the singers and the baroque dance ensemble Corpo Barocco who delighted the audience. In addition to the opulent costumes, hundreds of candles were especially memorable, which gave the production a very special touch and put the entire hall in a dreamlike mood.
