ARIODANTE

George Frideric Handel

 

George Frideric Handel
ARIODANTE
English National Opera, 1996


Soloists: Gwynne Howell, Ann Murray, Joan Rodgers
Orchestra, Chorus: English National Opera Chorus
Conductor: Ivor Bolton
Director: David Alden

Ariodante is based on an episode from Ariosto in which a single act of treachery devastates a family and society at large. David Alden’s rich and strange staging transforms Handels’ opera seria into an erotically-charged nightmare of lust, betrayal and violated innocence, in which the happy ending never eclipses the darker themes. Ian McNeil’s resonant stage pictures are ravishing and exquisitely lit. A superlative cast includes Dame Ann Murray, Lesley Garrett, Joan Rodgers, Christopher Robson and Paul Nilon.
