Arguably Handel’s operatic masterpiece, Orlando contains not only one winning aria after another but also strong musical portrayal and projection of character and dramatic situation, including the most famous of all baroque musical mad scenes. Our starry cast sings of love, suspicion, jealousy, rejection; Orlando is in love with a princess who in turn adores an African prince, who is also the object of a shepherdess’s affections. Surely this way only madness lies, but luckily there is a magician on hand to sort things out with a magic potion…

‘[YBS]... Outstanding – faultless intonation and rhythmic accuracy – freshness and sincerity both in accuracy and expression’ Yorkshire Post

Sung in Italian with surtitles.
