A beautiful and inspired performance of one of Handel's most creative operas. The patience needed for the large file to download is trivial compared to the pleasure one will experience in listening to this in its entirety. Renee Fleming's voice is exquisite as always and Les Arts Florissants' period instrument performance together with Christie's detailed directions sets the standard for Handelian and baroque opera.
