Alcina

The 2014-2015 season will begin with the Canadian premiere of a fully staged period production of Handel’s Alcina (Oct. 23 – Nov. 1, 2014).

George Frideric Handel’s Alcina is a Baroque masterpiece and will mark Opera Atelier’s first major Handel production at the Elgin Theatre. Alcina tells the story of a sorceress whose world is a mirage composed of the souls of her past lovers and the Christian knight Ruggiero who is destined to set them free.

Producing this sublime masterpiece has long been on Opera Atelier’s wish-list, and we are delighted to have found an extraordinary Alcina in Canadian soprano Meghan Lindsay, who audiences will remember as Agathe in Der Freischütz (The Marksman). We are also particularly thrilled that Alcina includes some of Handel’s most famous dance music, giving us a unique opportunity to feature the superb Artists of Atelier Ballet.

Ms Lindsay will be joined by an exceptional international cast of singers which includes Allyson McHardy as Ruggiero, Wallis Giunta as Bradamante, Mireille Asselin as Morgana, Kresimir Spicer as Oronte and Olivier Laquerre as Melisso. Alcina is sung in Italian with English surtitles.

1:00-3:30 pm. Saturdays in November. A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.
