Introducing... Alcina

Jerusalem Lyric Opera Festival 2023 will see Alcina`s first production, directed by Katia Korabelnik and conducted by Ethan Schmeisser. Alcina is a philosophical parable about the vicissitudes of love and the delusions of reason. This story can be interpreted in any way, as a children`s fairy tale about brave heroes who defeated an evil sorceress, as an enchanting baroque performance, or as a psychological drama. Brief introduction The setting of the opera is the enchantress Alcina`s island: here by her magic powers she has created a magnificent palace in a beautiful landscape, to lure her many lovers into her power. One of these is Ruggiero, a warrior, who under Alcina`s spell has forsaken his duty and his betrothed, Bradamante.
