An extraordinary thriller. A dark, tense, claustrophobic environment. Powerful men, strong women. Desires of the heart clashing with rank and duty. If you liked the high-wire singing in INO’s Vivaldi Griselda last year, you’ll love the adrenalin rush of the instrumentally virtuosic vocal writing and show-stopping arias in his Bajazet.
