Handel goes Tinder
A new multimedia opera – Night concert
“Handel goes Tinder is a multimedia opera that is best described as ‘Sex and the City on steroids, enriched with 18th-century opera’.” This is the explanation given by soprano Channa Malkin. Dorinda, based on the figure of the shepherdess from Handel’s opera Orlando, embarks on a passionate search for true love that blurs the lines between lust, love, suffering and greed. She stands for all women who take on amorous and human challenges – and fail. Singing, music and projection create a mixture of opera, comedy and club entertainment which shows that Handel’s work remains relevant to our times.
