Baroque Banter is Pinchgut Opera's new podcast series and this first episode will focus on a very famous scene from one of Erin Helyard's very favourite operas. It is the incantation scene sung by Medea from Cavalli’s Giasone, with a wonderful libretto by Cicognini. It was very famous and became a model for composers and librettists for over a century. Erin will explain some of the features of the incantation scene and he’ll also be speaking to Celeste Lazarenko, who sang Medea for Pinchgut Opera back in 2013.
