Les Arts Florissants

The great conductor William Christie brings us this work by Händel

The Liceu embodies the Baroque with a magic opera by Handel, under the expert, skilled baton of specialist in the Baroque repertoire William Christie conducting Les Arts Florissants, both conductor and musical ensemble making their debut in the Liceu. Adapted from Ariosto’s Orlando furiosoAriodante is one of the German composer’s “magic operas”, and the first he composed for London’s new Covent Garden. This is a new opportunity to rediscover a heroic opera, where love, heroism and passion come together in some of the greatest da capo arias written by Handel. The Liceu welcomes French-American conductor William Christie and his usual ensemble, in a repertoire of which he is an undisputed master, and with the distinctive hallmark of Les Arts Florissants, whose musicians play period instruments.

Tickets on sale from June 2017.
