With its catchy melodies and tone-painting effects, Antonio Vivaldi’s cycle The Four Seasons is one of the most famous works in classical music. Vivaldi is unsurpassed in his ability to create pictures through sound. In this production, his music communicates with arias by G. F. Handel, who with kindred genius to that of Vivaldi had the knack of expressing human feelings in music. The choreographer Annett Göhre transforms this enthralling mixture of sounds from the two Baroque grand masters into a timeless evening of music and movement. The Four Seasons is transformed into a lifetime in dance, painted in music by Lautten Compagney Berlin, one of the most renowned German Baroque ensembles, under the proven direction of Handel Prize winner Wolfgang Katschner.
