This performance is a reunion of good friends. Four wonderful artists decided to perform together in an evening of baroque music, presenting a double bill of two gems: Bach's Coffee Cantata (Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht) and Pergolesi's comic opera in one act La Serva Padrona (The Maid - Mistress).
Both, cantata and opera are staged, in costume, sung in German and Italian with projected English supertitles, accompanied by BCO chamber orchestra. Harpsichordist and music director: Katerina Souvorova.
