Gondellieder: concert and readings

Inside the keel on the stage of the Fenice theatre the actress Ottavia Piccolo reads from the Venetian diary of J.W.Goethe translated by Nevia Capello and punctuated by the rediscovered barcaroles of J.A.Hasse performed by soprano Giulia Alberti under the conduction of Maestro Pietro Semenzato with ten soloists of the Venice Chamber Orchestra. Funded by the Goethe Institut and co-produced by the Fondazione Teatro La Fenice, ACIT di Venezia and the Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities of Ca’ Foscari University in Venice deliver a concert with readings that reevaluate the vivid and lively vision of 18th century Venice as seen with the eyes (and ears) of two great German artists.
