Serse, King of Persia’s love affairs build the narrative thread of an intrigue with political and witty turns and twists (including dressing up) for which Handel has composed many of his finest arias, expressing a great variety of feelings and strongly serving the title-role. Franco Fagioli dons Serse’s costume and inhabits Caffarelli’s vocal fireworks, wonderfully partnered by the delightful Vivica Genaux and Francesca Aspromonte. Expect a festival!
