English Touring Opera returns to the stage with magic for lovers of all ages.

Handel’s opera Amadigi is one of his finest, though rarely performed. Based on a chivalric romance about three young people imprisoned by a sorceress, Handel’s version is brimming with youthful vigour, humour and tears. The miracle is that Handel, a secretive bachelor, could so vividly depict the delirious highs and savage lows to which love can reduce us all. The cast stars William Towers and Tim Morgan in the title role and sopranos Francesca Chiejina and Jenny Stafford as the sorceress Melissa, and also features Rebecca Afonwy-Jones as Amadigi's companion Dardano and Harriet Eyley as Oriana, daughter of the King of the Fortunate Isles.

This new production with ETO’s period orchestra partner, the Old Street Band, is conducted by Jonathan Peter Kenny, directed by James Conway, and designed by Neil Irish with Rory Beaton and Harry Pizzey.
