The murder of Abel by his brother Cain is one of those subjects that fascinated a century preoccupied by theological matters. That first murder was to engender all humanity and cast the ambiguous figure of Cain in the role of the father of civilisation.

Scarlatti’s music evokes the fratricide with great gentleness, ‘like a flower of disease’. Master of the baroque repertoire, René Jacobs contributed to the rediscovery of unknown treasures, among which this rare Primo Omicidio, was presented for the first time at the Paris Opera in direction of Romeo Castellucci.

A co-production with the Staatsoper Unter Den Linden, Berlin and the Teatro Massimo, Palermo.
