We went to the dress rehearsal of the new production of Alcina at the Royal Opera House. Opens Tuesday, a beautiful, lively, clever, if quirky production, directed by Richard Jones and designed by Antony McDonald. I couldn’t quite figure out what it would have been like when it opened as an opera at the recently built Theatre Royal in Covent Garden in April 1735, but it certainly is very enjoyable in 2022. I particularly liked the trees.
