Italian baroque composer Stefano Landi's landmark historical opera about the inner life of fifth-century Saint Alexius receives an elaborate and fearless production featuring conductor William Christie and an all-male cast. Combining history, comedy and an innovative blend of musical styles, Landi's popular opera includes stellar performances by sopranist countertenors Philippe Jaroussky and Max Emmanuel Cencic.
