    Sorry to hear about the utter inconvenience and stress of it all. You are fine. And hopefully the excellent concert and its music made up for it. St. Matthew Passion and La Resurrezione !

    Agree. I enjoyed their version of Rodrigo. (I have Alan Curtis' version as well. Both good). I am quite happy with my purchase of Amadigi. There are not many Handel operas performed by early music...

    I liked this one. The staging was what I would describe as modernised traditional staging, which I liked. Only minor reservation was a touch of inactivity - the chorus and some lead singers (not all)...

    The performance was fine. Europa Galante on top form. The staging was somewhat bizzare at times. But not too outrageous (considering it is an early opera where outrageous modern staging appears to be...

    As far as they know, the English oratorios were not staged in the sense like the Italian operas were. A few of the other earlier ones may have had simple staging when Handel was composer in residence...

    I knew somebody would ask! In my mind, Handel's English oratorios were dramatic oratorios (exception being The Messiah). There are interpretations that take on a dramatic pace (which I personally...
