Handel in the North and Handel in the South
The spring at the Theater Vorpommern is all about George Frideric Handel: first with a new production of the opera “Alcina”, conducted by GMD Florian Csizmadia, who also sat at the second harpsichord himself. There are further performances to come in Stralsund, Greifswald and Putbus until July 2nd. A little later, six concerts followed with Handel’s “Messiah”. And in Madrid, Paul Goodwin, Artistic Director of the Department of Historical Performance Practice at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofia, conducted two concerts with the university’s baroque orchestra, which included arias from Handel’s operas “Ariodante” and “Gulio Cesare”.
