Festival plans to put on all 42 Handel operasmain
It’s the centenary of the Handel Festival in Göttingen and they are nothing if not ambitious.
The May 2020 festival will produce all 42 of Handel’s operas in various formats, reductions and arrangements.
Until Göttingen launched its festival in 1920, they claim, hardly any of Handel’s operas had been seen for 200 years.
But all 42 in 3 weeks? A bit of a digestion problem.
