Rodelinda

Rodelinda was an enjoyable evening of opera from the Metropolitan at Lincoln center. It was a pleasure to see Baroque opera revived. Having two counter tenors in the production is lucky as this is a less than common vocal achievement. One counter tenor (the role of Betarido - Andreas Scholl) struggled with some high notes. His speaking voice is more baritone, this may be a cause. The conducter was apt at interpreting Handel and the harpsichords added much to the baroque flavor. It is still favorable to see opera live.

This was awful. The music was so repetitive and the contratenor as the leadng man was incongruous.
