“Rivale” by Lucia Ronchetti at Staatsoper Berlin
For her new music theatre work, Lucia Ronchetti has newly defined the text of the baroque libretto, and condensed it to form an intense monologue. Clorinda becomes the narrator and witness of her own tragedy, which takes place at the level of an irreconcilable conflict between rivalry and desire. The first performance takes place in the Werkstatt of the Staatsoper Berlin on 8.10.2017, in a production by Isabel Ostermann conducted by Max Renne. Seven performances follow in the period running up to 22.10.2017.
