White Shirt Monday: Finding Dori

[Oh, look! A soprano in trousers. With boots. Hello! – Emöke Barath (Tolomeo) in Cesti’s “La Dori”, Innsbruck/Festwochen Alter Musik 2019]

Wait, what was the plot of “La Dori” again and can we play it at the Parade? – Emöke Barath (Tolomeo) and Francesca Lombardi Mazzulli (Arsinoe) in Cesti’s “La Dori”, Innsbruck/Festwochen Alter Musik 2019

Ah, right. “Gl’ingannati” as an opera: young prince passes as a woman, young woman princess as a young man, both of them have romantic entaglements, general gayness ensues. Happy Pride! – Emöke Barath (Tolomeo) in Cesti’s “La Dori”, Innsbruck/Festwochen Alter Musik 2019

    1. This is The Original L Word, 1657.

      (I think it was 657? But Gli’ingannati (the play) is from 1542, I believe)
