    La belle Hélène by Offenbach
    Jim Petts, Opera at Bearwood, Orchestra of Opera at Bearwood, Serena Kay
    Reddam House Theatre (formerly Bearwood College) Wokingham RG41 5BG
    United Kingdom

    Like Orpheus in the Underworld, this rarely performed operetta is an irreverent and hilarious take on Greek mythology and the scurrilous going-on that led to the Trojan war. It's the story of Paris and Helen and her abduction by him disguised as a shepherd. A feast of melody with a zany plot it caused a minor scandal in Paris in the 1860s with its suggestive innuendo and lyrics.

    It's an ideal show for a warm summer's evening providing fun and laughter and no dead bodies for a change as with more serious operas!

    Handel’s New Star: Giovanni Carestini
    Joanna Harries, Joseph Ramadan
    Handel House London W1K 4HB
    United Kingdom

    The year is 1733 and Handel’s most famous singer, the castrato Senesino, has just left him for the rival London opera company.
    He pins his hopes on a new rising star: Giovanni Carestini, whose unique voice reportedly runs the full gamut from a powerful clear soprano to a full and rich alto.

    Featuring music from Handel’s Ariodante and Alcina, as well as lesser-known works, Joanna Harries (mezzo-soprano) explores some of Carestini (and Handel’s) greatest hits.
