Alcina is a baroque masterpiece by George Frederic Handel. The title character, Alcina, is a malicious sorceress who lives on an enchanted island with her sister Morgana. She uses her magic spells to trick men into falling in love with her. But once she tires of them, she turns them into animals or inanimate objects. All performances will be in the cozy confines of Pittsburgh CAPA Theater, 111 9th St, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, which is ideally suited for baroque performances. Pittsburgh Opera is pleased to partner with Chatham Baroque for Alcina.
