Handel’s opera Hercules
Richmond Opera (formerly known as Isleworth Baroque) will present a fully staged performance of Handel’s opera Hercules, sung in English with baroque orchestra, at the lovely Victorian Normansfield Theatre. As Hercules returns home from yet another war, how will his wife Dejanira react to the beautiful princess Iole he brings as his captive? Dejanira recalls she has a sure-fire charm to keep Hercules faithful forever … but magic has a way of twisting the outcome. Come and find out how it ends while listening to some to sublime Handel played on period Baroque instruments.
