Seconda Prat!ca

Almira – a unique figure in Handel’s œuvre and the heroine of his first opera. A journey through the centuries, and through disparate historical worlds creates a musical portrait of the Spanish Queen. At the same time, it opens a window on Spain’s multifaceted music from the Middle Ages up to the 18th century. Almira’s profound journey into her own past bridges the gap to the repertoire of past centuries and also manifests Handel’s extraordinary musical creativity.
