Concertgebouw Brugge takes you to Opéra de Lille for Handel’s first oratorio

A glance in the mirror of Pleasure is enough to make Beauty forget her mortality. Time and Truth are always on hand, however, to give her some stern (and frequent!) advice: ‘Beauty is like a flower that blooms in a day and then dies.’ The battle between these four allegorical characters provides the words – penned by Cardinal Benedetto Pamphili – for Handel's first Roman oratorio. Virtuoso arias, brilliant sinfonias and powerful ensembles showcase a 22-year-old composer, who already seems to have discovered every musical secret. Plastic and theatrical, Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno inspired director Krzysztof Warlikowski to create a new stage setting. Concertgebouw Brugge takes you to the Opéra de Lille to hear four outstanding singers, led by Emmanuelle Haïm, who knows Handel’s flamboyant oeuvre like the back of her hand.
