My first attempt to see this made me cringe and say: here we go again, the director and the others responsible of the visuals have gone amock But at my second try I had to eat my words. The mood created by the staging, the lighting, the costumes and yes even the direction, was just right. The numerous chorus and dancers stayed quite appropriately and unusually nonobtrusive, enhancing the bucholic mood of the serenata . The singing was first rate. I've been Norberg-Schutz admirer for a long time (I first saw her on TV in a city opera marriage, and more recently, live in a concert.)Her Italian diction is great and her voice has extraordinary beauty. Rancatore was a joy to listen and deserved the ovation she got from the audience. Pizzolato's Ascanio was great and the other singers were good too. And what beautiful music!
Finally, this Ascanio was hundred times better than the Salzburg production. The latter has wonderful singers, but pretentious staging and direction.

This is the economy version. Where are the nymphs and fauns, the shepherds and shepherdesses, set in a pristine landscape? The arias are elaborately decorated, even for opera seria. Too much so for the aged Venus, with her unpleasant fluttery wobble. Ascanio gets the most beautiful music, written by young Mozart for his favourite Milanese singer, a mezzo castrato.
Here it is ably performed by Marianna Pizzolato. The story is an allegory, representing young Archduke Ferdinand and his d'Este bride, plus members of the wedding party. They should have been flattered by the original production
