King George II made an appearance at the premier of the new opera Alcina,

 showing an unexpected loyalty to Handel: the composer who introduced Italian opera to England. In the Spring of 1735 Handel was in conflict with a rival company and on the verge of bankruptcy, but he achieved a resounding success with his opera Alcina. With a libretto based on Ariosto’s popular romance, a story full of fantastic scenes and surprises, Handel has never brought a more profound humanity to his characters, especially in their romantic misadventures. The beautiful melodies in this score have stood the test of time, and have now been restored to their original brilliance by Diego Fas.
