About

For Handel’s Admeto, Oscar-nominated film director Doris Dörrie – winner of the 2009 Edinburgh International Festival’s prestigious Herald Angel Award – returns to her beloved subject of Japan. In vividly coloured and brilliantly realized set pieces, one of Handel’s most popular operas receives a stunning transformation into the stylishly ritualized world of samurai culture.

“It’s brilliantly played by the period-instrument FestspielOrchester Göttingen, conducted with fine sensibility and sensuality by Nicholas McGegan” -The Times

“Handel would have enjoyed this enchanting shadow theatre.” - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“In Doris Dörrie’s production … 200 minutes of music fly by.” - The Times
