After an absence of over twenty years, Ariodante makes its grand return to the Palais Garnier. Using a story adapted from Ariosto, Handel wrote one of the most beautiful pieces of Baroque opera, combining expressive and colourful orchestration, virtuoso arias of incomparable eloquence and a series of dance passages at the end of each act. Under the musical direction of Harry Bicket, at the head of the English Concert, Emily D'Angelo plays the title role, in a production directed by Robert Carsen, who, following on from Alcina, continues his psychological exploration of the protagonists of Orlando furioso.
