The “Opéra Urbain” ­ projekt KRÃSIS was developed in 2013 and was shown open air in festivals in Switzerland. The new baroque orchestra berlin collaborated with video artist Julie Beauvais. She designed monumental video installations, for which the baroque orchestra performed opera arias of Georg Friedrich Händel. The arias represented the four temperaments of humoral pathology, sanguine, apoplectic, melancholic und phlegmatic, in musical affects. In the music aesthetics of the Baroque era, music does not only express human feelings, but is able to influence the human body and soul.

The exciting performance was highly successful in its musical illustration of fundamental human passions.
