G. F. Händel
Faramondo, Farnace, Artaserse, Alessandro have all proved to be outstanding operatic successes for Parnassus Arts Productions, attracting enthusiastic audiences, critical superlatives and prestigious awards. Just weeks after their release, the CDs of Alessandro and Artaserse, operas touring in the 2012/13 season, have already achieved substantial recognition: among the honours received by Alessandro are France’s Diapason d’Or and Choc de Classica 2012, while the Christmas 2012 edition of the UK’s BBC Music Magazine has named it CD of the Month. Artaserse, meanwhile, has received the Diamant d’Opéra and the Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros, both in France.
With Handel’s Tamerlano, Parnassus Arts Productions is proud to present another jewel of Baroque opera. This new production furthers our successful collaboration with the internationally renowned Baroque specialist ensemble Il Pomo d‘Oro and it‘s conductor Riccardo Minasi. The cast – Max Emanuel Cencic, Xavier Sabata, Fabio Armiliato, Nuria Rial and Mary-Ellen Nesi – promises an operatic experience at the highest level. Recording sessions with Naïve were made in spring 2014, while performances started in the 2014/15 season.
