image for Opera item typeEnglish Touring Opera: Radamisto at Coronation Halladd to shortlist

Opera, Tue 6 Nov 2018

English Touring Opera: Radamisto

English Touring Opera: Radamisto

Details

English Touring Opera make a swift return to Ulverston after the sell-out success of The Marriage of Figaro in June.

Radamisto tells a dramatic story of a royal family in old Armenia, locked in mortal conflict.

Thematically, it champions faithfulness and married love, but it also has a fine gallery of moral depravity and intolerance. Certainly one for collectors, this is nonetheless a moving and accessible piece of music theatre for anyone wanting to try opera.

Peter Whelan conducts, and James Conway directs a new production in Adam Wiltshire’s designs, inspired by the art of early Christian Armenia.

Radamisto was one of Handel’s most appreciated operas, not least for its famous aria “Ombra cara”, which stunned audiences and was sung in drawing rooms for decades thereafter.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

There will be a free Pre-Show Talk, 6.30pm
