07/15 - Alcina

I've recently come back from a wonderful 7 weeks making an opera with Katie Mitchell in Aix-en-Provence - the piece was Alcina an opera written by Handel in 1735 for his first season at the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden. It's got some beautiful arias in it and our singers were amazing; Patricia Petibon, Philippe Jaroussky, Anna Prohaska, Katarina Bradić, Anthony Gregory and Krzysztof Baczyk (also with Elias Mädler and Lionel Wunsch). Along with them were a fantastic ensemble of actors, who made it possible to create a rich and fascinating world around the main action.  The production will go on to be performed at the Bolshoi theatre in Moscow in 2017.
