Making his Archiv opera debut, celebrated Handelian René Jacobs, “the most exciting opera conductor of the day” (Münchner Merkur), leads the dynamic, exquisitely honed B’Rock Orchestra and an outstanding cast in Orlando, one of Handel’s most ravishingly beautiful creations. The fantastic title role, written for the legendary Senesino, is sung by its finest modern exponent, Bejun Mehta, “one of the most commanding, exhilarating countertenors of the modern era” (The New York Times). Archiv’s first recording of Orlando will be released in May.
