Marc Minkowsi returns to Mozart’s Mitridate

In November 2020, French conductor Marc Minkowski proposes a new production of Mitridate, re di Ponto, after having conducted the opera at the Salzburg Festival in 2005 and 2006. The event takes place at the Berlin Staatsoper, for 5 performances, from 13 to 28 November 2020.

For the occasion, Minkowski conducts his ensemble Les Musiciens du Louvre and a dazzling cast. French sopranos Julie Fuchs and Elsa Dreisig sing the prima donna and primo uomo roles (Aspasia and Sifare), while tenor Pene Pati is Mitridate, three terrifyingly difficult parts. The cast also includes Jakub Józef Orliński (Farnace) and Anna Prohaska (Ismene).

This Mitridate is also to be performed at the Philharmonie de Paris on 2 December 2020, in a concert version.

An event not to be missed, let’s hope this can happen !
