Roaring Twenties. Raging Love.
She’s the most eligible bachelorette in 1920s Paris. And she’s besieged by suitors.
Love is a battlefield in Christopher Alden’s Olivier award-winning production of Partenope, a laugh-out-loud comedy of romance and rejection, set to some of George Frideric Handel’s most masterful music.
A master of the Baroque repertoire, Christopher Moulds returns to the podium to lead Handel’s virtuosic score, a brisk confection full of high-flying virtuosity and emotionally stirring arias.

Partenope is the queen of the Paris social scene, her salon a magnet to the era’s surrealist artists as they vie for her hand in a laugh-out-loud comedy.
