G.F. Handel’s Orlando
The video from the Schulich School of Music’s two performances of G.F. Handel’s Orlando are available on YouTube for viewing. We spent most of January, February and March, 2022, preparing for these shows which were performed live for an online audience on March 26 and March 27. The two casts were superb, the singing and vocal virtuosity were wonderful, the stage direction by Patrick Hansen was very imaginative and lively and the McGill Baroque Orchestra, with Dorian Bandy serving as concertmaster, was outstanding. The shows are LONG, so feel free to dip into them as the spirit moves you.
