Gala concert with Hana Blažiková

Handel-Festival 2019

The operatic persona of Arianna is characterised by a great propensity to sobbing and lamenting. Her grief has many fascinating facets. The thread running through this concert is made up of arias from Handel’s Arianna in Creta and in this context, Monteverdi’s Lamento d’Arianna could be considered to be the ur-lamento. The musical expression of lonely grief pierces the soul. And in Locatelli’s concerto grosso; Pianto d’Arianna, a disconsolate solo violin sobs, lamenting, cursing and imprecating her beloved Theseus.
Who else could bring tears to the audience's eyes better than Hana Blažiková in the role of Arianna? The Czech soprano is famous for her intuitive, emotional and direct musicality. She is accompanied by Les Passions de l’Ame.
