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.

Stay tuned!
