ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Will Deidamia prevent her lover Achilles from going to war in Troy? Indeed, the Oracle was formal: the valiant Achilles is essential to the capture of Troy, but he will not find glory there, but death. The young princess, daughter of King Lycomedes of the island of Scyros, then uses all sorts of stratagems to delay Achilles’ departure, even feigning madness! However, heroes and mortals alike, no one can escape their destiny…

Leonardo García Alarcón:

Opera in a prologue and three acts on a libretto by Giulio Strozzi, premiered in Venice in 1641.

The incredible success of La Finta Pazza in Venice in 1641 is often attributed to the presence of the diva Anna Renzi and the amazing machinery of Torelli. But a show with a very good singer and an impressive machinery can achieve absolutely nothing if the music is not extraordinary. As soon as I read this score, which has hardly ever been played nowadays, I immediately understood that this music had a surprising quality, and why it had produced, even in France, such a striking effect. on the young Louis XIV. It is a piece that offers something new in the history of music, at a time when opera becomes public, with an extremely accomplished relationship between text and music. It is this quality, the quality of this music which explains why La Finta Pazza was the first opera given to the Court of France in 1645, this country which did not know opera at all.
