OPERA ON CHARLES' CORONATION IN ROME

On Christmas Day of the year 800, Pope Leo III crowns the Frankish King Charles Roman Emperor. The masses acclaim him, the Pope pays his homage, the Byzantine Emperess Irene is indignant. Charles has reached the pinnacle of his power – just as King David once did when he set a violent end to Saul's reign. Origen interprets the legendary coronation as a magnificent opera collage in a temporary theatre temple. With Gregorian chant, Renaissance music by Carlo Gesualdo and new arias by Edward Rushton, sung by Origen's vocal ensemble conducted by Clau Scherrer.
