Ping & Woof Opera presents Handel’s “Orlando”
Ping & Woof Opera presents Handel’s Orlando, an opera seria in three acts. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Orlando, a great soldier in Charlemagne’s army, falls desperately in love with the pagan princess Angelica, who is in turn in love with another man, Medoro. Orlando cannot accept this and is driven to madness, prevented from causing absolute carnage only by the magician Zoroastro (who eventually restores his sanity).
Admission by donation at the door.
