Great Performances At The Met: Rodelinda

Renée Fleming reprises one of her most popular interpretations: the title role in Handel’s "Rodelinda," under the baton of Baroque specialist Harry Bicket in the revival of Stephen Wadsworth’s acclaimed production. Andreas Scholl also stars as the exiled king Bertarido and Stephanie Blythe as his sister Eduige. English countertenor Iestyn Davies makes his Met debut as Bertarido’s faithful friend Unulfo, and, in Met role debuts, Joseph Kaiser sings the usurper Grimoaldo and Shenyang the corrupt royal advisor Garibaldo.
