The festival premiere of ALCINA at the Prinzregententheater on July 17th 2005 was, like so many other premieres of baroque operas, a highlight of the Munich opera season. Who does not like to think back to "Poppea", "Rinaldo" or, needless to say, "Giulio Cesare".
The production featured Anja Harteros and Vesselina Kasarova, two superstars of the international opera scene. Under the approved direction of Ivor Bolton, the entire ensemble was celebrated by the audience with standing ovations, and no less euphoric was the echo in the press!
