Les Arts Florissants Orchestra & Chorus
William Christie

• "The Handel opera boom continues apace. And no wonder. Over the last 20 years singers, directors and audiences have collectively discovered that these musically rich works are also penetrating human dramas. And no Handel opera is more psychologically astute than “Orlando.” ... The formidable conductor William Christie, in his 1996 recording, draws a fervent, deeply expressive yet stylistically informed performance from his acclaimed early-music ensemble, Les Arts Florissants, and a fine cast headed by the mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon in the title role." -- Anthony Tommasini, NEW YORK TIMES

• Orlando has one of those quintessentially goofy Baroque opera plots, but it is partially sustained, at least, by some of Handel's most beautiful arias. Mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon as Orlando sings well enough in a technical sense, but is on the dull side dramatically. The rest of the cast is more interesting, particularly Harry van der Kamp as the magician Zoroastro, and the sweet-voiced Rosa Mannion as Dorinda. It's really William Christie's show, of course, and his conducting of his talented ensemble is one of the best things about this recording. -- Sarah Bryan Miller
