EARLY OPERA COMPANY
Handel’s 'Amadigi di Gaula'
© Sim Canetty-Clarke
In December of this year, we are thrilled to record Handel’s early masterpiece 'Amadigi di Gaula', one of his finest operas, with a wonderful team of singers and players. Our world-class cast is made up of Tim Mead as Amadigi, Lucy Crowe as Melissa, Anna Dennis as Oriana and Hilary Summers as Dardano.
Over seven intensive days, the soloists and Early Opera Company orchestra will come together with Chandos' world-class recording team in the perfect acoustic of St Jude's, Hampstead.
Handel’s dramatic setting is a spectacle of enchantment, ghostly spirits and hellish demons. He explores every emotion, from jealousy, vindictiveness, and infatuation, to passion, optimism and triumph. The recording will be released on the Chaconne label in 2022.
