About

Grammy award winning conductor Rene Jacobs, "the most exciting opera conductor of the day" (MŁnchner Merkur), leads the dynamic BíRock Orchestra Ghent and an outstanding cast inone of Handelís most spectacular and ravishingly beautiful creations, Orlando.

In a recording career spanning four decades, Jacobs has surveyed a phenomenal amount of repertoire - operatic and instrumental, from Monteverdi to Mozart, from Bach to Pergolesi, with Hšndel, Gluck, Telemann and many more in-between.


The title role is sung by Bejun Mehta, "one of the most commanding, exhilarating countertenors of the modern era" (New York Times).

"One thing is for sure: whether you like Baroque opera or not, you will never be bored by an opera conducted by Renť Jacobs. By shaking up convention with his subtle readings, sometimes even rewriting the composerís score, the Belgian conductor is the one of those rare few who always find an elegant way to bring the repetitive mannerisms of the Baroque to life." - Bachtrack.com
