PARTENOPE: Georg Frideric Händel, 1730. Partenope, warrior-queen and founder of Naples, is pursued by three suitors, including her neighbouring enemy. One of the suitors has left behind a previous fiancée, who now pursues him disguised as a man. Original commission from Iford Arts. N.B. This is in ‘full score’ format rather than piano score. There are cuts in the recits and some arias to bring the running time to within 3 hours with an interval. Please get in touch if you would like any of the arias in a separate format.
