Georg Friedrich Händel
Unknown librettist based on a text by Antonio Salvi
Composed in 1735 and as modern as tomorrow: a society without values, eccentric, egoistical. Love doesn't have a chance in that kind of society, as Ariodante and Ginevra discover after the power-hungry Polinesso unleashes his intrigues against them. This production makes everyone involved into the non plus ultra of what Händel opera stands for today: pure beauty – grim truth.
