Ariodante (HWV 33)

Dramma per musica (HWV 33) in three acts by George Frideric Handel – Concertante Performance in Italian

Captivating music and a poignant plot characterize Handel's first work commissioned for the Covent Garden theater. Moreover, Ariodante is still one of the composer's most frequently performed stage works. And what would a Handel opera be without its trials and tribulations? Ariodante, a young nobleman, and the Scottish king's daughter Ginevra have fallen in love with each other. Ariodante, however, has an adversary who makes him believe that his beloved is deceiving him... With good reason, this work restored its creator to his "musical supremacy" in London: well-known arias such as "Dopo notte" or "Scherza infida" are among the standard repertoire pieces of many renowned singers. A superb cast built around Festival star Emily Fons transforms the concertante performance into a highlight for those who love opera - and for those who aspire to do so.

Together for Pleasure!
