Kansas City’s favorite mezzo-soprano, Joyce DiDonato, joins forces with London-based baroque orchestra The English Concert, led by director and harpsichordist Harry Bicket, and an all-star vocal cast to bring to life one of Handel’s finest operas. Following DiDonato's stunning portrayal of Alcina in 2014, this latest installment in The English Concert's Handel opera series sees the much-anticipated return of the effervescent mezzo-soprano in the title role. Marking 500 years since the publication of Ludovico Ariosto’s Orlando furioso, a tale of knights and entangled love, Ariodante stands as Handel’s final opera on the subject after Alcina and Orlando.

The full vocal cast and roles are Joyce DiDonato, Ariodante; Christiane Karg, Ginevra; Mary Bevan, Dalinda; Sonia Prina, Polinesso; David Portillo, Lurcanio; Matthew Brook, King of Scotland; and Tyson Miller; Odoardo.
