Alice Coote e chiaramente una cantante handeliana di esperienza

Even after a long evening this superb account of Ariodante leaves one wanting more

A marvellous Ariodante at the Barbican Hall

By far the most interesting portrayal came from Sonia Prina as the villain, Polinesso

Alice Coote plunged uninhibitedly into the title role of Handel’s opera

This concert performance offered Handel as an Almodóvar ensemble piece, comic and tragic in equal measure and gloriously uninhibited
