What's on Stage

One can be forgiven for asking the question when did Handel write Furioso because the answer is that he did not. This is a clever creation of a piece of music theatre telling the story of a couple from their childhood through to old age. By putting together a series of solos and duets from various Handelian operas and rarer chamber pieces, Max Hoehn and the Ardente Opera Company have created a delightful entertainment which is performed by the mezzo Anna Starushkevych and Sporano Allegra Parton. Not only does this creation work, but the voices chosen are perfectly balanced and the music is exquisitely expressed. ****
