Barihunk Ryan McKinny sings Tiridate's aria "On the wings of my ambition":
Pisaroni will reprise the role of the antagonist Tiridate, which he sang to rave reviews at the Santa Fe Opera in 2008. Radamisto was the first of Handel's operas written for the Royal Academy of Music. It combines sex and politics in a subtle musical portrayal of human relations that ultimately champions the power of personal and marital loyalty.
