Venice Launch: Conference and exhibition 13 - 16 June 2019

We are delighted to be able to announce our very first conference in Venice


The conference will serve to launch the project to reconstruct the original Teatro San Cassiano of 1637 as faithfully as modern scholarship and traditional craftsmanship will allow in order to deliver a fully functioning, dedicated and historically-informed Baroque opera house, complete with its own fully operational Baroque stage machinery, moving scene-sets, dei ex machina, special effects, and unique acoustic environment.

The theatre will restore Historically Informed Performances (“HIP”) of Baroque opera to Venice and estab- lish both the theatre and Venice as a world-renowned centre for the research, exploration and staging of “HIP”, literally studying and celebrating Baroque opera through its recital on stage and in the orchestra pit.

The conference shall run between 13 and 15 June 2019. There will also be a simultaneous, free to enter, ex- hibition open to the Venetian public, which will culminate with an “open-day” on Sunday 16 June where our management team will be available to chat and answer questions.
