Join us to celebrate Handel’s musical legacy with an opera inspired by the alleged adventures of Giacomo Girolomo Casanova (1725-1798) and given new life in a libretto by Stephen Pettitt. Julian Perkins has arranged music by Handel, Vivaldi & their contemporaries to create this new brand new opera. David Wilson-Johnson as ‘Old Casanova’ acts as narrator, telling the story of his early seduction by a young woman, his meetings with the rich and influential, his escape from a notorious Venetian prison and the touching tale of what was, perhaps, his one true love affair.
Ukrainian-born Mezzo-Soprano Anna Starushkevych will be performing selected arias.
Anna Starushkevych has graduated from the International Opera Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying with Laura Sarti and recently completed the Artist Diploma course at the school. Read more about Anna here.
