Partenope description

Rosmira still loves the man who jilted her, Arsace. He, unfortunately, is in love with beautiful Partenope. As too are Armindo and Emilio. So naturally, Rosmira dresses up as a man and becomes another of Partenope’s suitors, in order to win back Arsace. And that’s before things get really tangled…

Combining glittering arias and wonderful ensembles, Handel’s comic masterpiece follows the exploits of four rival suitors in pursuit of Partenope’s love.

Christopher Alden’s Olivier Award-winning production – with designs inspired by the Surrealist imagery of Man Ray – returns for its first revival.

Baroque-specialist Christian Curnyn conducts a world-class cast, including former ENO Harewood Artist Sarah Tynan, mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon, and tenor Robert Murray.
