Welcome to the White Shirt live comment thread for Handel’s “Aci, Galatea e Polifemo” from Copenhagen (2013), with Sonia Prina as Galatea, Deborah York as Aci and João Fernandes as Polifemo.
Concerto Copenhagen is conducted by Alfredo Bernardini, the staging is by Deda Cristina Colonna (special mention to Hair and Make-Up by Jens Gunnar).
[PS. I thought the liveblog header could do with an upgrade to go with the newer design. With thanks to the fim team who filmed the Orfeo 55 “Duello amoroso” concert at Sablé, I found the suggestion of a female figure sitting in the dark awaiting the start of a performance, or experiencing a performance, very fitting.
Also very Rilke-ish in the sensual tension of “indelibly the smallest commotion / will leave an imprint / on the taut process of distance”]
