    il Pomo d’Oro 

    The extraordinary portrait of a woman in love rendered impotent by her passion is one of the finest and most moving roles in Handel’s repertoire. The composer employs the subtle art of twists and turns of plot which provide the pretext for endlessly refreshed melodic inventiveness and an incredibly richly constructed drama. Elsa Driesig’s Alcina is supported by Sandrine Piau as Morgana and Emily D’Angelo as Ruggiero, and by the finely honed conducting of Francesco Corti and the inspired musicians of Il Pomo d’Oro.
