Ariodante

OVERVIEW

The Ariodante open sessions are free and open to the public.

SUMMARY

In an empty room, singers, instrumentalists and audience members will gather together as one for a radically reimagined musical exploration of Handel’s Ariodante. Through improvisation and creative discovery, artists will experiment with Handel’s instrumentation and score to breathe new life into an opera that explores the vast range of human relationships and consequences of jealousy. Spanning six unique and open sessions throughout ONE Festival, Ariodante opens the door to creative process.
