L'Amore Innamorato: Arias by Francesco Cavalli

Zankel Hall
A golden age of Italian music shines in this concert of opera arias by 17th-century Venetian master Cavalli along with dances by two of his contemporaries. Cavalli was a prominent figure in Venetian opera, and his arias are melodically inspired with flashes of dramatic virtuoso fire. “Gloriously sweet-toned” (The Guardian), soprano Nuria Rial joins the daring early-music ensemble L’Arpeggiata in its eagerly awaited return to Carnegie Hall.
