Georg Friedrich Händel
Unknown librettist, text based on Ludovico Ariost
Bradamante has gone off in quest of her fiancé Ruggiero. This quest takes her to an island ruled over by the sorceress Alcina. Theatre magic, erotic experimentation, perfidious experiments on men! Alcina has used this - since the world première of the opera 270 years ago: to show that desire and reality are hardly compatible. Stage director Christof Loy, whose production of Händel's Saul
in Munich had the international opera world craving for even more Händel, has scored a major triumph for baroque opera in our own time with this staging.
