Still tickets available for Handel’s Partenope

There are still tickets available on 26 and 28 June.

Forget the solemn oratorios. Handel’s opera  Partenope  was originally rejecte d by the Academy as being too frivolous.  If it was a film it would be a romcom about an irresistible and independent- minded  Queen and her shifty lover, who meets his waterloo when his ex turns up at court disguised, and determined to get him back. The music is delightful, dancey and catchy, in the deft hands of Christopher Bucknall’s Contraband, and a dazzling cast.  It’s a comedy with soul, Shakespearean depths, and a daft denouement.  (I really don’t know why we haven’t done it before!)
