      Giovanni Simone Mayr’s most successful opera, Medea in Corinto, is now available for the first time on recording, performed from the new critical edition recently published by Ricordi. For the most part, the new edition is based on an 1821 manuscript that contains essential changes over all previously published editions. It excludes, for example, a cavatina for Medea, which the composer eliminated for this edition and then later published in a single edition for voice and piano.
      The production heard here is a live recording from the Theater St. Gallen. The performance received great international acclaim and was considered to be a breakthrough for the long forgotten work by Mayr. A new production of Medea in Corinto will be performed at the 2010 Opera Festival in Munich.
