Baroque ‘n’ Roll – Il Tigrane comes to Nice!

Home / News / Baroque ‘n’ Roll – Il Tigrane comes to Nice!

Opéra de Nice have a real treat in store for lovers of baroque this June as they present Il Tigrane (L’egual impegno d’amore e di fede – The Equal Ties of Love and Faith), one of the finest operas by the Italian Baroque composer, Alessandro Scarlatti (pictured below). This three act opera seria also features a libretto by another Italian of renown, Domenico Lalli.

Whilst the main plot is somewhat serious (murder, kidnapping, reconciliation, and a whole lot more!), there are also some lighter moments, provided by two of the characters in the opera, the servants, Dorilla (played by Mireille Lebel) and Orcone (Douglas Williams).
