Mantua, Bibiena Theatre - Il Matrimonio Segreto - Vittoria Licari
The young conductor Giovanni Pavesi was at the head of the Lucio Campiani Conservatory Orchestra. It was his operatic debut and he was struggling with one of the most complex scores of eighteenth-century Italian repertoire, Pavesi demonstrated an excellent technique, a particular sense of theater and an uncommon ability to balance voices and music. The premises for a promising and rewarding career are real. Good luck!
