Casanova

Seriously entertaining show: 

2016 saw the world première of their opera pasticcio, Casanova, at London’s Kings Place. Devised by Stephen Pettitt and Julian Perkins, performed by Sounds Baroque. It is a theatrical entertainment inspired by the alleged adventures of Giacomo Casanova. Praised by Opera magazine as ‘a witty pasticcio’, it features an array of works by 17 composers including Vivaldi, Handel, Hasse, Gluck – and even Bellini. It also has what is possibly the world’s longest-held dramatic note in a recitative!
