This set brings together three of Handel’s most compelling works for the stage in lavish Glyndebourne productions featuring period-instrument accompaniment from the renowned Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. David McVicar directs an all-star cast in Giulio Cesare, combining serious insight with entertainment to bring the masterpiece to life, aided by vivid playing from the OAE under William Christie. In Robert Carsen’s fun-filled transformation of Rinaldo, lacrosse sticks and flying bicycles lend the fantasy’s warriors and witches contemporary chic, with conductor Ottavio Dantone leading a youthful cast from the keyboard in Handelian fashion. Director Barrie Kosky’s Glyndebourne debut, Saul stole the 2015 Festival season and had critics raving. The Glyndebourne chorus plays an outstanding role, and the OAE sparkles under Ivor Bolton, as the Old Testament story is retold in Handel’s time with witty anachronisms from costume designer Katrin Lea Tag.

- 3 acclaimed Glyndebourne Handel productions from David McVicar (Giulio Cesare); Robert Carsen (Rinaldo); Barrie Kosky (Saul)
- Stars include Sarah Connolly (Cesare - Giulio Cesare); Angelika Kirchschlager (Sesto - Giulio Cesare); Danielle de Niese (Cleopatra - Giulio Cesare);
Christopher Purves (Saul - Saul); Iestyn Davies (David - Saul)

‘‘Christie conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and an outstanding cast in an account at once scholarly, lively and refreshing,’’ (The Penguin Guide - Giulio Cesare)

‘‘Sonia Prina’s mezzo-soprano excelled.’’ (The Daily Telegraph - Rinaldo)

‘‘...Musically this evening is well-nigh flawless.’’ (The Independent --- Saul)
