La Calisto

  • Upstairs at the Gatehouse Highgate Village N6 4BD (map)

Directing Cavalli's La Calisto for Hampstead Garden Opera at Upstairs at the Gatehouse

This is one of Cavalli's best-loved works today but was largely forgotten in its day. This opera follows the story of Jove's seduction of Calisto, and the blossoming relationship of Diana and Endymion. La Calisto explores many different qualities and expressions of love through the many different characters.

Book now as this production will sell-out.
