Handel's Opera Partenope HWV27
Handel’s opera Partenope, which premiered at the King's Theatre in London in 1730, will be performed by HGO Trust Ltd & Cappella Neapolitana di Antonio Florio Ensemble. Although following the structure and forms of opera seria, the work is humorous in character and light-textured in music, with a plot involving romantic complications and gender confusion. The opera, which is in three acts, is composed to an Italian libretto adapted by an unknown hand from a libretto originally written in 1699 by Silvio Stampiglia.
