The Neue Hofkapelle München was founded in 1992 by specialists in historically informed performance practice. Unique in the South German cultural scene, it has established itself in recent years as a permanent early music orchestra under the artistic direction of Christoph Hammer and concertmaster Rüdiger Lotter. Ensemble members are dedicated to researching, documenting and reperforming lost treasures of the Bavarian palaces and monasteries, complementing the musical palette with national and international projects. The orchestra has gained great renown in the area of opera since 1998. It performed Giovanni Ferrandini’s Catone in Utica in Munich’s Cuvilliés-Theater, one of the most beautiful surviving rococo theatres and the site of the work’s première in 1753. The Neue Hofkapelle München regularly accompanies the production of a 17th- or 18th-century opera put on by the Bavarian Theatre Academy “August Everding”. Reinhard Keiser’s Fredegunda and Mozart’s Così fan tutte were part of the 2007 season; Henry Purcell’s opera Fairy Queen and Antonio Vivaldi’s Orlando furioso will follow in 2009.
