Travel Tip: Opera in England

Radamisto: By Georg Friedrich Handel
LONDON  •  Barbican Centre  •  -

Georg Friedrich Handel: Radamisto
Concert performance

Harry Bicket, conductor

For his first ‘Royal Academy’ opera, Handel chose an imposing subject: desire, dictatorship and personal infatuation at the court of the Armenian King Tiridate. After its first airing in London in 1720 the critic Charles Burney described Radamisto as ‘more solid, ingenious and full of fire than any drama which Handel had yet produced in this country.’ But there’s intense subtlety and humanity in Radamisto, too, in the delicate poise of its very personal and artful arias and ensembles. Baroque aficionado Harry Bicket assembles an all-star Handelian cast to join the musicians of the English Concert for this rare performance of the exquisite Radamisto.
