Product Description

Georg Friedrich Händel



A tale of jealousy and intrigue, conflict and betrayal: Ariodante, Handel's first work for the then brand-new Theatre Royal in Covent Garden. At this time, the composer was highly caught up in rivalry, bankrupt and stricken by disease. However, rejuvenated by a retreat, he wrote a work based on Ariosts Epos' Orlando furioso. And he succeeded in creating a richly varied and colourful score - including the intimate Aria "Scherza infida" - still regarded today as a particular gem amongst Handel's compositions. Ariodante has, as yet, never been performed at the Wiener Staatsoper and joins Alcina as the second of Handel's operas in the repertoire.
