DISCORD AT THE TOP OF OLYMPUS!
Mars, Pallas, Apollo and Juno argue. Jupiter appears to reconcile them from the height of his almighty power. Antonio Caldara, the greatest Italian composer of his time, transforms this game into a dazzling musical masterpiece. Written to the glory of the Austrian Emperor Charles VI, in whose service Caldara worked, this Contesa de ’Numi is a true musical feast. From baroque "to the highest of Heaven"!
