Handel's Atalanta

Composed for a royal wedding celebration, Handel’s Atalanta at Caramoor is a tale full of hidden love and disguise, complete with vocal fireworks. Long dormant since its 1736 premiere, Atalanta’s lively overtures, festive melodies, and favored arioso, “Care selve,” were revived in 1970 and are now the perfect accompaniment to a summer evening at Caramoor. We are delighted to welcome back Nicholas McGegan, whose expertise in this repertoire covers a dozen Handel oratorios and close to twenty of his operas, along with America’s leading period-instrument ensemble, for its Caramoor debut.  —Caramoor

“Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra have been making their way through this body of music for decades, and each new installment seems more strikingly revelatory than the last. — Joshua Kosman, SFGate
