Opera in three acts. Music by George Friedrich Handel. Libretto by Nicola Francesco Haym, after a libretto by Antonio Salvi, from the drama Pertharite by Thomas Corneille.

Jean-Marie Villégier's stylish production of Rodelinda sets Handel's tale of royal exile and fidelity in the silent movie era. The composer's ravishing music is perfectly set off by the sophisticated glamour and visual daring that characterized the birth of cinema.

Anna Caterina Antonacci (Rodelinda) ; Kurt Streit (Grimoaldo) ; Umberto Chiummo (Garibaldo) ; Louise Winter (Eduige) ; Andreas Scholl (Bertarido) ; Artur Stefanowicz (Unulfo) ; Tom Siese (Falvio) ; Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment ; William Christie, conductor.

Sung in Italian, with English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish subtitles.
