OPERA DEI LUMI – Concert – 13th August at 7:30pm

An evening on the Michaelerplatz, Vienna

A program featuring music from Haydn and Martines

Marianna Martines: Sinfonia in C
Marianna Martines: ‘Berenice, ah, che fai’
Joseph Haydn: Symphony No. 43 in E-flat (Mercury)

Catrin Woodruff soprano

Opera dei Lumi’s first event since 2019

Join Opera dei Lumi as they explore the music of Marianna Martines, a prolific and widely recognised musician and composer based in Vienna in the late 1700s. Martines lived in the same apartment building on the Michaelerplatz, Vienna, as Haydn and was a close personal friend of the seminal librettist Pietro Metastasio. Featured in the programme, we will hear Martines’ exciting and dramatic setting of Metastasio’s famous ‘Berenice, ah, che fai’, a text set by Haydn, Paisiello, Gluck and Jommelli and many others, and her vivacious Sinfonia in C. Haydn’s Mercury symphony will close the evening’s proceedings.
