The English Concert

Harry Bicket and The English Concert’s acclaimed cycle of Handel operas continues with Orlando – starring Iestyn Davies in the title role. 

Torn between love and glory, the knight Orlando gives way to madness – and rampages through a world of lovers, sorcerers and all-powerful spirits. Handel’s 1733 opera is a true extravaganza, performed tonight by some of the world’s leading living Handelians. 

The New York Times chose The English Concert’s performance of Handel’s Alcina as one of its Ten Best Classical Events of 2014; but for many, the chance to hear Iestyn Davies in one of Handel’s most extrovert leading roles will be all the recommendation they need. Rising US soprano Erin Morley and 2007 Cardiff Singer of the World Shenyang supply exactly the sort of vocal star-power that Handel would have expected.
