Adriano In Siria
For the festivities marking Giovanni Battista Pergolesi's tercentenary in his native Jesi, Ignacio Garcia created a new staging of the imperial drama Adriano In Siria. His staging in Jesi's exquisite 18th-century Teatro G.B. Pergolesi includes the delightful comic intermezzo Livietta E Tracollo, thus following the precedent set at the premiere in 1734. A fine Italian cast and the distinguished Accademia Bizantina are led by the Accademia's director, Ottavio Dantone.
