Two apparently distant realties meet in this project: the immense vocal versatility of Petra Magoni and the passion for the aesthetics and the baroque dramaturgy of Carlo Ipata and his Auser Musicians. The common thread is the role of death with which the great female figures of classical theatre, such as Ariadne, Dido and Medea, are confronted.

From Monteverdi to Purcell, via Vinci and Clérambault, the great composers of the past have set to music the torments and passions of the heroines who, with extreme courage, face the male figures Theseus, Aeneas and Jason, finding that death and suicide are the only way to escape their only apparent condition of weakness.

For these heroines death is always an inevitable destiny, whether it is greeted with joy or sorrow, and is always tied to love, even if in a different way each time: for Dido, suicide is the only way to end the dichotomy of being queen and the need/ability to love someone (impossible love); for Ariadne, death is the only way to cope with lost love; for Medea, in the cantata by Clérambault, murder is the way to deal with betrayed love.
