Handel went on

Post  kosovohp on Fri Feb 25, 2011 5:13 am

Handel went on to dominate opera in England for several decades. Rinaldo was revived in London regularly up to 1717, and a revised version was presented in 1731. The opera was also shown in several European cities; of all Handel's musical dramas, Rinaldo was the most frequently performed during his lifetime. However, after 1731 the opera was not staged for more than 200 years, until a renewed interest in baroque opera during the 20th century led to the first professional modern production in Handel's birthplace, Halle, Germany, in 1954. The opera was mounted sporadically over the following thirty years, but after a successful run at New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1984, performances and recordings of the work have become more frequent worldwide.
