The English Concert
Handel's Alcina (opera in concert)
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
An enchanted island, a knight errant, one of the most seductive sorceresses in all of music, and a happy ending that could only take place in a Baroque opera make Handel’s Alcina magical fun. Gramophone magazine said that Joyce DiDonato “is superb: Her Alcina is a complex, feminine creature, vain, and vindictive.” DiDonato casts her spell in one of her signature roles when she’s joined by Alice Coote and The English Concert, conducted by Baroque specialist Harry Bicket.
