Standing ovations for Il Venceslao in Herne

There was a very enthusiastic standing ovation with never-ending applause after the performance of Il Venceslao (opera by Antonio Caldara) on November 12, 2023 at the Kulturzentrum as part of the Tage der Alten Musik festival. Parnassus Arts Productions has remained true to its reputation as a rediscoverer of unknown baroque operas, some of which have not been performed since the 18th century. In this spirit, we present the revival of Il Venceslao.
