La finta giardiniera
In Mozart's first «Dramma giocoso», composed at the age of 18, enormous depths of feeling collide with theatrical racket. At the centre of the plot is the gardener Sandrina, behind whom the Countess Violante Onesti, believed to be dead, hides. Tatjana Gürbaca's production (which premiered at the Theater Winterthur last season) features an exquisite ensemble of singers: The world-renowned Greek soprano Myrtò Papatanasiu sings Arminda, Kenneth Tarver, who recently recorded Mozart roles such as Don Ottavio and Ferrando with Teodor Currentzis, the Podestà, Mauro Peter can be heard as Belfiore, and Rosa Feola is the «fake» gardener.
