'David Alden's bold and beautiful staging' (The Sunday Times) of Handel's inspired romantic masterpiece returns to the London Coliseum, featuring world-class Handelian singers. Alice Coote takes the title role in this fascinating interpretation of Ariodante, which creates an emotionally charged world of surreal sensuality, lost innocence and betrayal. Paul Nilon, Patricia Bardon and Peter Rose lend their talent to one of the summer's strongest ensembles, while the musical score falls under the direction of British conductor Christopher Moulds. Potent characterisation, imaginative choreography and an award-winning set complete this 'evening-long feast of Handel' (The Financial Times).
The performance on June 8 does not have surtitles.
