Here we are with a rich vein of Handel this month - The London Handel Festival. This evening I will be at Ariodante in the Britten Theatre at the Royal College of Music - a lovely space for Handel's operas. And it is also an extraordinary opportunity for the advanced students at the RCM to show how to the opera how they have developed. They have some good ones that I have noticed over the last couple of years - so I am sure that this, with Lawrence Cummings in charge in the pit, will be a good evening. And Ariodante is, after all, not a bad piece.......! More tomorrow.
There is more lovely Handel opera next week - Berenice.
Daylight saving (Summer time) does not start here for another two weeks - but my American friends need to put their clocks forward tonight.
