I'm not a big fan of Handel

but I would definitely check out this production of Deidamia if I were in Amseterdam anytime soon. The staging and costumes seem much less staid and tedious than the usual Handel production. Looks quite tongue in cheek, too, and I like that. :)

I've always enjoyed Handel, and this looks like a riot.

The thing I can't stand about opera is that even most of the alto part notes are too high for me, so I prefer the stuff what don't have words, so I can just listen and enjoy, rather than feel like a scrawny tenor with boobs.

Two weeks seems like an awfully short run for so much trouble!
