ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

What a party! After the wedding in Vienna, the wedding of Paul Anton Count Eszterházy and Maria Therese Countess Erdödy in Eisenstadt in January 1763 was celebrated for days with great pomp: the groom’s father, Prince Nicholas the Magnificent, lived up to his nickname – ham, sausages, Smoked meat and bread for the assembled people included. On the second day, the festival guests in the castle were able to experience “a beautiful Wälsch opera entitled: Acide”, as a newspaper reported at the time: the work that the 30-year-old Joseph Haydn was to describe as his “very first opera”. “Acide” is based on the Greek legend of Acis and Galathea, which was popular for weddings because of the couple’s love that transcended death: the longing, jealous Cyclops Polyphemus kills his rival Acis, who turns into a river at the request of the grieving Galathea and from then on pours himself into the sea in which she lovingly welcomes him as a nymph.

Haydn’s first opera, which only survives in fragments, was premiered on the occasion of the wedding of Paul Anton Count Eszterházy and Maria Therese Countess Erdödy in Eisenstadt in January 1763. Never change a winning team: After the great success with Mozart’s “Bastien and Bastienne” in Last year, the directing duo Carolin Pienkos & Cornelius Obonya, together with the conductor Heinz Ferlesch and Barucco, now devote themselves to this exquisite opera rarity from Haydn’s pen and make it shine with a young ensemble
