Lose yourself in a story of dark enchantment when the Pittsburgh Opera presents a production of Alcina at the Creative and Performing Arts Magnet school (CAPA). George Frideric Handel's opera finds Bradamante trying to save her fiancé Ruggiero from the clutches of the seductive sorceress Alcina and her sister, Morgana. As titillating as it sounds, the stakes are pretty high — if Ruggiero doesn’t shake Alcina’s evil spell, he’s destined to be transformed into a beast, or worse, an inanimate object. Alcina is presented in partnership with the Chatham Baroque musical group.
