As you like – jocular, sensual, dramatic. opia delves into the musical depths of this game – merging literature from the Renaissance to the early Baroque.

In this atmospheric programme, the musicians interpret sensual songs and lively dances with voice, recorders, viola da gamba, harpsichord and percussion instruments. In different instrumentations, they vary the sound colours from intimate to magnificent chamber music and their own quodlibets.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identities, we too move musically between worlds: Discovering savoir vivre at the French court, rushing to the cosy Viennese inn, fleeing from the plague into the warm embrace of English melancholy, crossing rushing rivers in the middle of the German forest solitude, feeling the mild west wind of Italy on our skin, and dreaming of great love at night on the Spanish coast.

opia, consisting of 6 musicians, combines tonal diversity, intensity of expression, rhythmic sophistication and experimental joy of playing. Founded in spring 2019, opia has already performed in Austria, Germany, Italy and Israel, including at the Grafenegg Festival and the Innsbruck Early Music Festival. The ensemble focuses on lively interpretation, recomposition and improvisation of music from the late Middle Ages, Renaissance and early Baroque.
