In this sumptuously beautiful film, actress Galatea Ranzi lends her voice to Giacomo Casanova who, in 1751, was commissioned to produce an Italian translation of a French opera that would produce “great transformation.” The Venetian adventurer chose Cahusac’s Zoroastre to “enlighten the men who would lay the groundwork for the French Revolution.” Interspersed with Casanova’s texts, the Theresia Youth Baroque Orchestra performs instrumental and vocal excerpts from the opera’s original version. The delicately paced images in Gianni Di Capua’s film, shot in the recently restored neoclassical Teatro Galli de Rimini, form a subtle interplay with Ranzi’s deep, solemn voice, the elegant shadows of the theatre and the great ethereal movements of the music. A unique, unprecedented celebration of classical music.
