Program notes

Experience director Adrian Noble's and conductor Marc Minkowski’s acclaimed 2011 production of Handel's Alcina in the Wiener Staatsoper. Re-imagining the classic opera as a play-within-a-play, this Alcina is staged in late 18th century London by the famous British Duchess Georgiana Cavendish and her friends. A fascinating few hours of baroque delights!
