ACCADEMIA BIZANTINA
OTTAVIO DANTONE, harpsichord and conductor

 

Ottavio Dantone leads Accademia Bizantina and a top-level cast in the new production of one of Händel‘s most important works, the composer’s operatic debut in the UK and the first Italian opera ever written for London: Rinaldo.

The plots, magic and charm of 18th century theatre come alive today, bringing us back to the fervour of the London of the time.

A real gateway to the golden age of Baroque theatre, with attention to the rules and conventions that underpin the drama for music.

Double CD, live recording, booklet 128 pages.
