Big Ticket Shows, Halifax Summer Opera Festival

Alcina

When: Sun., Aug. 4, 2 p.m., Tue., Aug. 6, 7:30 p.m., Fri., Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 11, 2 p.m. 2019

If we think of opera writers as the rock stars of their day (stick with me here) then really, Alcina should be considered the equivalent of Handel's comeback album, seeing him lauded once again by London opera-goers in 1735. Here, the Halifax Opera Festival remounts the story, exploring a magical island ruled by a seductive, capricious sorceress.
