James Conway directs an exciting cast of singers, joined by the period instrument orchestra The Old Street Band.
Amadigi loves Oriana. Secretly, his friend Dardano does too. Into this love triangle steps the sorceress Melissa, who uses all her supernatural powers to try to take Amadigi away for herself. In his “magic opera” of 1715, Handel vividly depicts the delirious highs and savage lows of falling in love with music of dramatic contrasts.
Cast: Francesca Chiejina, William Towers, Tim Morgan, Rebecca Afonwy-Jones, Jenny Stafford and Harriet Eyley. James Conway director Neil Irish with Rory Beaton and Harry Pizzey design Old Street Band Jonathan Peter Kenny conductor
