Summary Conducting from the keyboard just as Handel himself did, Ottavio Dantone leads a youthful cast of today's luminaries in the dramatic art of Baroque opera, the 'affecting' Sonia Prina, the 'unadorned intensity' of Anett Fritsch and 'fire-breathing flair' (The Observer) of Brenda Rae. Rinaldo is given a contemporary new twist through the eyes of Director Robert Carsen, who made his Festival debut with L'incoronazione di Poppea in 2008
