The performance details can be seen at:

It looks like a scenic version with rather silly scenery paying little heed (despite invariable protestations otherwise) to the drama - although of course I have not seen it and may be wrong!

The blurb says that the Kammermusikalisches Ensemble des Festival Retz uses period instruments (as important for the texturally sensitive Zelenka as for Telemann), but I do not know any of the singers and their Early Music credentials are therefore unknown to me.
