Notes & Reviews:
Mayr was a musician of great success at the beginning of the 19th century. Medea in Corinto is one of his best operas. It was premièred at the San Carlo theatre in Naples in 1813 and for decades it was one of the fortes of Isabella Colbran and Giuditta Pasta. Benedetto Sicca's direction has a great emotional impact, as have the distinctive and practised performances of all the artists involved. Fabio Luisi is a Grammy Award-winning Italian conductor; principal conductor of the Metropolitan Opera and General Music Director of the Zurich Opera. Two great tenors are in the important roles of Jason and Aegeus: Michael Spyres and Enea Scala. Medea is entrusted to the Spaniard Davinia Rodriguez, who easily tackles even the difficult cavatina with obbligato violin of Act One, traditionally almost always omitted.Notes & Reviews:
