ETO – Tamerlano
English Touring Opera return to Exeter with a celebration of the work of the greatest composer of opera in the UK, George Frideric Handel.
A gripping psychological contest between a tyrannical emperor and his captive, Tamerlano is the most perfect of Handel’s operas and a true marriage of drama and music. It was written in a year of inspired creativity that also saw the composition of Giulio Cesare and Rodelinda, and also features one of the first major tenor roles in opera.
English Touring Opera present Tamerlano in a new production from Artistic Director James Conway, performed with ETO’s period instrument partners The Old Street Band.
Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
