La tentazione del male (Tempted by Evil)

La tentazione del male (Tempted by Evil)
SALZBURG  •  Mozarteum  •  Ongoing

Under the artistic and musical direction of Riccardo Muti, the 2009 edition of Salzburg's Whitsun Festival focuses on the musical history of Naples, the city where Muti was born (1941) and trained as a musician. In addition to Niccolò Jommelli's  (17141774) opera seria Demofoonte, the festival also features: La tentazione del male (Tempted by Evil)

With their knowledge of the musical, literary and theatrical traditions of Naples, Guido Morini and Marco Beasley create a program inspired by one of the most fascinating personalities of the 18th century: Raimondo di Sangro, Prince of Sansevero, was advisor to the King of Naples, an intellectual commanding an encyclopedic knowledge, and an alchemist. An evocation of the mysterious and intriguing world of Neapolitan popular culture, suffused by legends and superstition.
