      Opera review - hot on drama: To say that the English Concert's performance of Handel's Alcina at the Barbican on 10 October was hotly anticipated would be an understatement.

(AP.K)/5(3). Synopsis The setting of the opera is the enchantress Alcina’s island: here by her magic powers she has Alcina a magnificent palace in a beautiful landscape, to lure her many lovers into her power.

One of these is Ruggiero, a warrior, who under Alcina’s spell has forsaken his duty and his betrothed, Bradamante. More significantly, he unleashed two brand-new, spectacle-infused operas, both based on popular stories from Orlando furioso: Ariodante (which opened 1735 book Jan.

Alcina was written for the new Covent Garden Theatre and was Handel’s last great London success. It tells the story of a magical island ruled by a. Alcina turns towards the seraglio of the fairs, and murmuring a few words, a lion goes on gentle towards Oberto, when Alcina gives his dart to the same, telling him: Take my dart, Oberto, and defend yourself from that fair.

The lion is caught near Oberto, and he is licking his feet. OBERTO Eh. show me friend. ALCINA Do not trust yourself: kill. Alcina was composed for Handel's first season at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden in London. It premiered on 16 April Like the composer's other works in the opera seria genre, Alcina fell into obscurity; after a revival in Brunswick in it was not performed again until a production in Leipzig in Alcina was first staged at Covent Garden inafter the German-born composer had made London his home.

After a few performances it was neglected for almost years, but today is one of Handel's most enjoyed works. It should suit Glyndebourne down to the ground. Alcina is sung in Italian with English surtitles. Wickedness is defeated and true love triumphs. With some of Handel’s most well-known melodies, and a plot full of heroism, love, and witchcraft, Alcina remains as popular with audiences today as it was at its first performance in   Handel - Opera `Alcina` () HWV 34 (complete) Donate: ?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=7WM4UWSY4LB32&source=url Alcina Missing: book.

Alcina (Patricia Petibon) and Ruggiero (Philippe Jaroussky) As you all know, no doubt, the plot of Alcina is drawn from Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso. In the course of his travels the knight Ruggiero has ended up in the island kingdom of the beautiful sorceress Alcina.

Ruggiero appears in several operas, including La liberazione di Ruggiero () by Francesca Caccini, Alcina () by Handel and is the main character in Johann Adolph Hasse’s Il Ruggiero.

Movie. Ruggiero is played by Ron Moss in the Italian film Paladini-storia d'armi e d'amori ("Paladins—the story of love and arms", aka "Hearts and Armour"). Reviewer: averderber - favorite favorite favorite favorite - February 7, Subject: Overture to Alcina Boyd Neel conducts his orchestra in the overture to Handel's opera seria "Alcina", which premiered in   Costumes were a mixture of the fantastic, such as Alcina’s flamboyant feather-trimmed gown, and the vintage: Bradamante is dressed as a tomboyish 19th-century explorer, complete with pith helmet, while Melisso wears the top hat and cloak of a Victorian gentleman in the smogs of London.

Alcina was composed for Handel's first season at the Covent Garden Theatre, London. It premiered on Ap Like the composer's other works in the opera seria genre, it fell into obscurity; after a revival in Brunswick in it was not performed again until a production in Leipzig in Has a Handel opera joined the bread-and-butter repertoire.

It seems so. Since the start of the year, "Alcina," first seen in London inhas turned up in several European opera houses, with Zurich and Lucerne giving new productions and Paris reviving a significant recent staging.

The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet has also joined the fray. The sorceress Alcina stands for anyone who has felt - or who has feared - their powers of attractiveness fade away and Handel’s music traces her journey into despair and powerlessness, from her love-besotted opening aria to her abject sorrow in the final act when she realises that nothing is left for her except tears.

Alcina (Angela Meade) is the sorceress queen of an island she rules aside her sister, Morgana (Ying Fang). They lure men to the island to ensnare them in love, only Alcina quickly loses interest and turns her lovers into all variety of beasts and objects.

Handel. Alcina. ( London ). EMI EX 27 3 (US: EMI Angel DSD) (4 LPs ), reissued on 3 CDs: 7 Richard Hickox, City of London Baroque Sinfonia.Alcina is a sorceress. She changes people into stones, trees, and animals. Bradamente lands on Alcina's island looking for her fiancé Ruggiero. He has been enchanted by Alcina.

He is in love with her. Bradamente has a magic ring that allows her to break spells. She intends to use it to free Alcina's victims. She lets Ruggiero wear it.Gauvin, her silk-clad Morgana fully as manipulative as Alcina, and Prina, the ever faithful Bradamante, each bring tremendous spirit and sensuousness to their roles.

If Van Rensburg's Oronte wavers momentarily in Act 3, Priante's steadfast Melisso and Cherici's courageous Oberto show the way.

This could well be the Alcina we've been waiting for.
