Fully staged operatic centerpiece of the
June 2013 Festival!
A remarkable success when it was originally presented in Hamburg, the opera shows the early genius of Handel that would soon make him a star in Italy and London. This is truly a rare opportunity to enjoy this dazzling parade of entertainment and delight combining German, Italian, and French influences in a crowd-pleasing spectacle of dance, comedy, and drama.
