The by-now traditional Opera Exam Festival is once again serving up special performances. The Haute école de musique de Genève HEM has prepared for listeners the rarely performed Venetian Festivities, an early work by the French Baroque opera composer André Campra. It consists of a prologue and three entrées (four or five in subsequent versions). Each entrée has its own independent intrigue and characters, and the various acts are loosely linked together by a tenuous thread (in this case, the Venice location).  The performance of the Haute école de musique de Genève HEM presents short excerpts selected from the piece with the baroque dances scenes in the center of the show. The fine harpsichordist Dorota Cybulska is responsible for the musical side of the production, while the staging of the project is coordinated by French director Daniel Estève.
