The tour of Handel's Radamisto starring barihunk Luca Pisaroni, Patricia Bardon, Elizabeth Watts and countertenor heartthrob David Daniels under the baton of Harry Bicket is kicking off this week. It opens on February 6th at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris, then heads to Birmingham, England on February 8th, London's Barbican on February 10th and then jumps across the Pond to Ann Arbor, Michigan on February 17th and New York's Carnegie Hall on February 24th.

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.


  1. Pisaroni sings the role of Tiridate in "Radamisto" not the title role (that is Daniels).

  2. Never mind. I shoulda read the whole thing.
