Summary
Renée Fleming and Andreas Scholl lead a superb cast in Stephen Wadsworth's celebrated production of Handel's Rodelinda from the Metropolitan Opera, based on the "Live in HD" transmission to cinemas worldwide. The title role is unique in featuring no less than eight magnificent arias. Renée Fleming's triumph in the first run of the production was hailed by The New York Times, "Ms Fleming draws on every resource of her artistry in this portrayal: luminous sound, exquisite ornamentation, floating high notes, emotional volatility." Playing opposite her is Decca Classics countertenor star, Andreas Scholl, as King Bertarido, assumed dead, but returning to reclaim his throne and his queen. The handsome period production sets the drama of public and private passion in the Milan of Handel's own time, majestically presented in the set designs of Thomas Lynch and the lavish costumes of Martin Pakledinaz
