Commissioned to celebrate the marriage of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and Marie-Thérèse of Spain, the original production of Cavalli's Ercole amante was, at the time, the grandest show ever performed in Europe. DNO's contemporary, hilarious and surreal production, directed by David Alden, is a triumph of opera buffa, a riot of decoration and symbolism complemented by Constance Hoffman's exceptional costumes. Luca Pisaroni's Ercole is heroic and melodious in turn, Veronica Cangemi is a splendid Iole, and the Chorus of De Nederlandse Opera and Concerto Köln give a sublime performance under Ivor Bolton, a master of baroque music, filmed in High Definition and surround sound.
