This dramatic trip to the frenzied world of Baroque opera in the company of some of Vivaldi’s mad characters comes courtesy of the O/Modernt Festival in Sweden, known for its wonderful and imaginative programming. Here the world of Vivaldi is contrasted with that of the celebrated Finnish composer-guitarist Marzi Nyman.

The operatic star for this madness is Luciana Mancini from the Berlin Staatsoper, with a voice of huge range, richness, and technical brilliance and as Festival Director I have been waiting three years for her to become available.

“Luciana Mancini proved a vibrant performer, tugging the heart strings…”

Leading the O/Modernt Ensemble is violinist Hugo Ticciati, the Fetival’s Artistic Director making a considerable reputation for his creative programming, and curating events at Kings Place and Wigmore Hall

“One of the most gifted young artistic directors that I have encountered. His interweaving of themes results in the most unexpected and joyful musical experience. It’s sheer pleasure to sit through a concert put together by Hugo”
John Gilhooly OBE, Director of Wigmore Hall
