Partenope, 2017, Markus Lambert

With elegant designs inspired by 1920s Parisian society and the surrealist imagery of Man Ray, Christopher Alden’s Olivier Award-winning production returned to ENO in 2017 for its first revival, conducted by Baroque-specialist Christian Curnyn. One of Handel’s comic masterpieces, this joyous adventure of disguises, misunderstandings and high-society intrigues, creates an elaborate sequence of twists and turns that follows the exploits of four rival suitors as they go head to head to win Partenope’s love.
