    Tamerlano is generally regarded to be one of Handel's most beautiful works. This is a drama superbly conceived for the stage, where the beauty of the arias has a rare emotional charge and a real tragic dimension. Handel's eighteenth opera, a work of genius, bears witness to the conflict between the conqueror Tamerlan and the Ottoman sultan Bajazet. It features a large number of accompanied recitatives, as well as ensembles (duets and trios) and, above all, it is among the composer's first works to offer the tenor a decisive role. Bejun Mehta, accustomed to the role of Tamerlano, is joined by Michael Spyres playing the impressive role of Bajazet.
