Argippo Resurrected

Argippo Znovuzrozený

Shot in Prague, Český Krumlov, Kuks and Venice, Argippo Resurrected expresses the suggestive beauty and original atmosphere of Baroque theatre. Antonio Vivaldi's lost opera Argippo was originally composed for a Prague debut in 1730. Lost for centuries, the opera's score was discovered by a young Czech conductor Ondřej Macek. Almost as remarkable as the discovery of this lost masterpiece was the process of remounting the work. Dan Krameš's film observes, gloriously, the gradual birth of the modern world premiere of Argippo and the search for its authentic Baroque interpretation. It confirms the genius of Argippo, the most significant opera written for Prague before Mozart's Don Giovanni.
