This Baroque opera project is a rather unusual musical-theatrical approach. It combines arias of Giovanni Pergolesi’s rarely-heard opera L’Olimpiade with a documentary film by stage director David Marton and Austrian filmmaker Sonja Aufderklamm. The film features Zurich’s elderly residents as its stars. Marton is known for his exploration of innovative theatrical forms, and this production once again breaks new ground. It examines the relationships between sound, moving images, and the stage, between opera and reality, and between song and human destinies.
Aufderklamm and Marton visited elderly individuals, played Pergolesi’s music for them, spoke to them about the arias and themes found therein. The music’s wide range of emotions is combined with in their faces, stories and lived experiences as well during Corona times. Pergolesi’s artistic treatment of arias – in the center of this musical-theatrical experiment – one of the most beautiful and masterful strokes of 18th-century
