The first of Handel's late Italian operas when he moved his company from Haymarket to Covent Garden.
This is fabulous music, beautifully sung and played. The cast is top notch. In particular, Hilary Summers as Medoro is superb. Only Harry van der Camp as Zoroastro is a little underpowered.
My sole criticism is that Amazon fail to mention that the Libretto is not included in the package. This problem can be alleviated by downloading the text from the internet; nevertheless it is a black mark for Amazon.
