A gripping psychological contest between Tamerlano, the Emperor of the Tartars, and his captive Bajazet, Sultan of the TurksTamerlano is the most perfect of Handel’s operas and a true marriage of drama and music. It was written in a year of inspired creativity that also saw the composition of Giulio Cesareand Rodelinda, and also features one of the first major tenor roles in opera.

English Touring Opera present Tamerlano in a new production from Artistic Director James Conway, performed with ETO’s period instrument partners the Old Street Band.
