“Handel wrote for the voice in a way that allows the performer to really shine!” says Franco Fagioli – and when this phenomenal Argentinean countertenor sings Handel’s music, it doesn’t just shine, it dazzles. Backed by the flamboyant il pomo d’oro, this is a night of singing at its wildest and most wonderful, a real banquet of showpieces by Handel and his outrageous Italian rival Vinci.
