Walking towards the venue I got to see other parts of Venice so that was nice. The space was perfect (small) for this production. The costumes are outstanding and all in all I enjoyed the performance. I know the story well and have performed it many times so this was a really fun treat in the middle of the historic setting.

Great quality show! Soloists and orchestra absolutely up to this masterpiece! The setting between monochromes and the beautiful acoustics of the room brought out the splendidly made costumes and the directorial choices characterized by the constant interaction of the singers with the audience. The voices always present and very in tune blended well with each other and with the orchestra, which interpreted the work with baroque instruments in philological tuning at 415 hz. Not to be missed!
