“Handel has this amazing ability to move from comedy, to drama, to romance  and it all seems to flow effortlessly. ”

“I think there’s this idea that his  Alcina is a simple story of two evil sisters who  are sorceresses. I don’t know if I’m on board for that one….I think it’s more complicated in a good way.” stage director Chas Rader-Shieber
