Ariodante

DVD - 2001 | Italian
Rate this:
The English National Opera first mounted David Alden's production of "Ariodante, " one of Handel's greatest masterpieces, in 1993. It met with unanimous critical and popular acclaim, and this 1996 revival features many of the leading singers from the original production. "Ariodante" is Handel's 1735 setting of an episode from "Ariosto, " in which the King of Scotland's daughter is treacherously accused of infidelity to her promised husband. The range of feelings provoked as the characters develop is caught in music of quite extraordinary emotional power, even by Handel's own exalted standards.
