Cantatas and opera arias by Handel and Vivaldi
Creation of Intrepid by Alessandros Markéas
With Pulcinella, Ophélie Gaillard cello and artistic direction, Julia Wischniewski soprano, Brice Sailly harpsichord, Caroline Delume guitars

Lucretia outraged, Arianne abandoned, Cleopatra the intriguing, succumbing to the love she wanted to arouse in Caesar, Andromeda forced to forget her beloved and marry another, Clori the shepherdess who breaks the heart of her lover, these archetypal characters are baroque incarnations of a variety of female destinies.

Usually victims, sometimes manipulative, these wounded heroines are glorified by Vivaldi and Handel, these two great composers for theater, and they travel through time to incarnate in our daily lives, to challenge us and push us out of our comfort zone.

Composer Alexandros Markéas has chosen the truculent poet Aristophanes as breadcrumb trail to guide us through his homeland Greece. On the sidelines of the Athenian society, insolent and restive to the power of money as to that of an archaic patriarchate, Aristophanes is free above all else.

Markéas summons other intrepid, funny and poetic heroines to create, in the manner of Aristophanes, a gesture of artistic revolt that does not deny poetry, absurdity and humor.
