City Recital Hall acknowledges the Gadigal of the Eora Nation, whose lands we are located on. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend this respect to all First Nations people and cultures.
But when Greek gods, river nymphs and mortals burning with passion all meet in one, things are bound to get hot.
In this sensual pastoral fable, drawn from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, worlds collide: heaven meets earth and music becomes magic. Apollo loves Dafne, Dafne loves her space. Titone loves Aurora, Aurora’s got her eye on Cefalo. Amore loves making mischief with them all. Hearts yearn as the sun and moon turn. Cavalli lets his creative genius soar, offering a new vision of opera: an inspired marriage of words and music that reveals the inmost thoughts and feelings of gods and mortals alike. In its bold passion, its flowing eloquence and its laments of exquisite beauty, this is a masterwork of the Italian baroque.
