For the third year, the BAROCKTAGE will be taking place at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Special ensembles and outstanding protagonists of early music can be experienced at the Unter den Linden opera house, the Apollosaal and the Pierre Boulez Saal, this time to perform early works by Mozart and late-18th century works by the somewhat older composer Gluck. A new production is dedicated to the opera seria »Mitridate, ré di Ponto«, composed by the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart exactly 250 years ago and premiered in Milan. Also in store are works centring on Orpheus by the great opera reformer Christoph Willibald Gluck, the Berlin Hofkapelle master Carl Heinrich Graun and Claudio Monteverdi – one of the »inventors« of opera – as well as short performances and installations in the Alter Orchesterprobensaal: a true Orpheus Festival awaits the audience of the BAROCKTAGE.
