About

A dazzling Royal trio. Founded in 1719 as the first opera company in the English-speaking world, the Royal Academy of Music commissioned and premiŤred some of the finest 18th-century operas, including Handelís 'Giulio Cesare'. Here are a dozen arias from operas written in the 10 year period from 1719-29 for their star castrati, particularly Senesino: some well known [Va tacito] and some less well known.

Renowned American countertenor Lawrence Zazzo is joined by La Nuova Musica and David Bates for a snapshot of the Academyís hits circa 1725 featuring arias by Handel, Ariosti and Bononcini.

ďThe Musical Director (Bates) and countertenor (Zazzo) are a pairing made in Handel heavenĒ - The Guardian [concert review]
