Studio Minailo

Minailo created a spectacle with French elegance, keeping balanced proportions between music, word and movement. Thus, he proved that it is possible to build a bridge connecting the past and centuriesold tradition with a contemporary interpretation. This harmonious performance, created with respect for the music is a tribute to the history and style of French baroque opera. It is exactly the golden mean: unobtrusive perception, not transposed, reflecting the artistic values of the work
