The Enchanted Palace – 'Chi poté sperar mai scampo'

Extracts | Rossi

“Who can hope to escape” the Enchanted Palace? At the end of the first act, the sorcerer Atlante has trapped all the characters inside. Singers, dancers and musicians wander through the labyrinth whose doors open and close to the rhythm of Luigi Rossi's baroque music.

Il Palazzo incantato has not been performed since its premiere in 1642. Music director Leonardo García Alarcón and stage director Fabrice Murgia are breathing new life into a little-known work never before performed at the Dijon Opera.

The full performance is no longer available but other material about the production can be found here.
