Description

Alcina - Georg Friedrich Händel

Alcina is an opera seria by George Handel, with the libretto of L'isola di Alcina, an opera that was set in 1728 in Rome by Riccardo Broschi, which he acquired the year after during his travels in Italy. In the ballroom at Devonshire House in London’s Piccadilly, Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, is putting on a play with her friends. She assumes the title role of the sorceress Alcina and allocates the roles. Her sister Henrietta Frances is to play Alcina’s sister Morgana, her friend Lady Elizabeth Foster plays Ruggiero, her sister-in-law Lavinia Bingham plays Bradamante, her son William George Spencer Cavendish, Marquess of Hartington, plays Oberto, her lover Charles Earl Grey plays Oronte, the British politician Charles James Fox plays Melisso, and Georgiana’s husband William Cavendish, Duke of Devonshire, plays Astolfo.
