The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.


A concert by Raffaella Milanesi will brighten up a winter’s day with the sunshine of Italian opera

On Tuesday, 18 February, the Italian soprano Raffaella Milanesi will perform in Dvořák Hall of the Rudolfinum, Prague, accompanied by the Collegium 1704 orchestra as part of the critically and publicly acclaimed series Baroque Opera Stars. The programme will comprise much later music than has been customary for this orchestra: Italian opera of the height of bel canto, juxtaposed with late classical works by Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven. Of the Italian repertoire, Raffaella Milanesi will sing arias from works by masters like Gaetano Donizetti (Lucia di Lammermoor), Vincenzo Bellini (La Sonnambula), and Gioacchino Rossini (Otello). The Collegium 1704 orchestra will perform this fascinating music on instruments dating from the period when the pieces were written, giving the music unusually rich timbres.
