Handel can be dull and repetitive- Rodelinda is both and needs a daring production to drag it from its baroque grave. The combination of Richard Jones precise direction, Jeremy Herbert's fascistic set, and Amanda Holden's (No! The other talented one!) relevent libretto carry you through 3 hours of harpsichord and cello and some pretty sound singing: in particularly Christopher Ainslie's countertenor is not to be missed and Rebecca Evans is steady and dignified as the much abused Rodelinda. Keep an eye on the silent Flavio whose performance is as moving as any.
