Teseo (1713)

By George Frideric Handel (Georg Friedrich Händel)

Recordings

Handel. Teseo. (HWV 9, London 1713). Erato 2292-45806-2 (2 CDs, 1992). Marc Minkowski, Les Musiciens du Louvre. Teseo: Eirian James, soprano; Medea: Della Jones, mezzo-soprano; Agilea: Julia Gooding, soprano; Egeo: Derek Lee Ragin, countertenor; Clizia: Catherine Napoli, soprano; Arcane: Jeffrey Gall, countertenor. It is impossible to rely on any purported "facsimiles" published by Erato in light of their doctoring of the facsimile libretto of Teseo to conform it to the music performed.
