There’s still a chance to see IU Opera Theater’s production of “Rodelinda.” The show will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10 and 11 in the Musical Arts Center.
Curious about the plot? Queen Rodelinda is faced with an impossible choice: Will she marry the Duke, who just usurped her husband’s throne and left him for dead -- or refuse the villain and see him murder her only son? Political maneuverings, romantic intrigues and ever-shifting alliances power the plot in what is considered one of Handel’s finest and most moving dramas.
The opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles.
The artistic team includes conductor Gary Wedow, stage director Tom Diamond and set and costume designer Philip Witcomb.
