Caught in a power play that could break a marriage and steal a throne, can Rodelinda stay true to love? Rodelinda is a dramatic tale of power, anguish and love.
One of Handel’s finest operas, Rodelinda is filled with intense drama told through ravishingly beautiful music. Award-winning director Richard Jones brings his distinctive theatrical imagination to this production, which sets Handel’s bitter political drama in Fascist Italy.
Heading the cast is Rebecca Evans, whose performance of the title role in 2014 was hailed as ‘perfection’ (Daily Telegraph). Also returning for this first revival is Susan Bickley and Baroque-specialist conductor Christian Curnyn. Tim Mead, regarded as one of the UK’s finest countertenors, adds Bertarido to his roster of ENO roles.
