No one can resist the spell of the glamorous, alluring enchantress Alcina.
She has conjured a magical island paradise where she lures unsuspecting, vulnerable men who are blinded by illusion, desire and pleasure. Amid a tangle of romantic conflicts, seductions and captivating deceptions, George Frederic Händel explores the fascinating and powerful complexities of how human beings suffer in love in this magnificent Baroque masterpiece. On February 8, SMU Meadows will sing it in Italian with English projected titles.
The opera runs through February 11 at the Bob Hope Theatre. Tickets and the program are available on our SMU Meadows events calendar. Photographer Kim Leeson attended the dress rehearsal and has returned with stunning photos in advance of the show.
