Ottone - A white woman stands on stage in front of a gold, red and green mosaic wall, looking to her right in alarm. Her hair is blonde and in a braid curled around her head, and her clothing looks classical.

ETO – Ottone

English Touring Opera return to Exeter with a celebration of the work of the greatest composer of opera in the UK, George Frideric Handel.

The tale of an emperor and his bride kept apart by court intrigue and the workings of fate, Handel’s rarely-performed Ottone returns in a revival of English Touring Opera’s 2014 production.

Featuring radiant Byzantine-inspired designs by takis, and sung in a translation by Andrew Porter, the production was highly praised by audiences and critics alike. Music comes from ETO’s period instrument partners The Old Street Band, conducted by ETO Music Director Gerry Cornelius.

Sung in English, with English surtitles.
