BWW Review: Dazzling RODELINDA Proves the Met's Not Too Big To Handle Handel Photo BWW Review: Dazzling RODELINDA Proves the Met's Not Too Big To Handle Handel
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 14, 2022

If Friday night’s performance of Handel’s RODELINDA sometimes seemed like it was never going to end--it was quickly approaching the witching hour by the time the curtain calls were over, having started at 7:30--it certainly wasn’t the fault of the cast but Handel himself and librettist Nicola Haym. With ornamentation galore and da capo arias that strung phrases along one time after another (and a plot to make your head spin), it set challenges for everyone on stage, both musically and dramatically. And they were certainly up to it.
