Handel’s works as OperBreve Opera in short a compelling family story, hauntingly clear music and lots of color this mixture results in Handel’s Opera Tolomeo produced by Mohamed Rahardt. The work performed for the first time in Hamburg is the contribution of the Opernlofts to the Handel year 2009 and sponsored by the Ministry of culture, sports and media. Georg Friedrich Handel, who died 250 years ago in London, wrote the story of an Egyptian ruler family: Tolomeo and Alessandro are the sons of Cleopatra III (a predecessor of the famous namesake loved Casar). The mother worshipping the one and offends the other. Alessandro, appointed even though he is the younger, the heir to the throne. Tolomeo is exiled to Cyprus, where he wants to take his own life. Opera untypical, this story goes well: the brothers reconciled after the death of his mother.
The Opernloft about today but no historical drama, but a family story: two dissimilar brothers fight for their place in the Family and in the society. “One paints pictures, the other doing business – one is MOM’s favorite, the other the black sheep”. Hatred, which eventually leads to a fatal accident comes from their diversity. The brothers fight to love her mother and to the same woman: Seleuce. The salt in this family soup is free, naughty and sexy artist Elisa.
