ETO: Ottone -2014
Handel’s comedies Flavio, Xerxes and Agrippina have been hugely popular with ETO audiences in Exeter in recent years. Now the company presents one of the composer’s most successful serious operas, Ottone.
Written for the greatest singers of the day, it dazzles with a treasure trove of tearful and brilliant arias, many of which are regularly performed in concert. The romantic story of a 10th century German Emperor and his Byzantine bride features unusual psychological complexity and, in the extraordinary second act, a dramatic sea cave setting.
Sung in English.
