Handel's Partenope ǀ English National Opera
Partenope by George Frideric Handel premiered at the King's Theatre. The work is humorous in character and light-textured in music, with a plot involving romantic complications and gender confusion. It was Handel's 1st comic opera since the much earlier Agrippina, breaking away from the more traditional opera seria works.
