Embarrassing
20 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is a collection of ballet music and arias from several Handel operas loosely hung around the plot of Handel's Alcina. The ballet music is largely uninspiring. I am an admirer of Kiri Te Kanawa's singing and acting ability but I think she better served by Verdi and Puccini. She looks resplendent and performs the showcase arias competently but appears to be embarrassed to be involved in such a tasteless enterprise. Surprisingly, she seems to be singing rather than miming. Christopher Hogwood conducts an orchestra in the cellar which, perhaps, explains the harsh sound quality.
