Bayreuth Baroque 2022
The Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival is pleased to announce the dates for next year's Bayreuth Baroque Festival, which will take place from 8 to 25 September 2022.
The 2022 edition will include a new production of Leonardo Vinci's Alessandro nell'Indie, directed by Max Emanuel Cencic. With the premiere on 8 September 2022 at the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth, Vinci's opera will be performed in its entirety for the first time in almost 300 years. The cast will be all-male, with countertenors Franco Fagioli and Bruno de Sá. The creation took place in Rome in 1730, with male singers, as women were forbidden to perform in the papal city.
