    Baroque opera is a static art form in which recitif alternates with song, in an A B format which is repeated with variations many times. Think of the Messiah. Dave McVickars offers a clever, lively production of Handel’s opera with detailed stage directions, costumes, and sets, with a large dose of humor. It's highly physical with dancing, acrobatics, and general physicality. This splendid production is so detailed that revivals will be hard pressed to equal it, since, as with all new productions, revivals don’t receive the same amount of rehearsal time, or the creative team on hand to oversee the performances, not to mention the top flight cast of singing actors. You should make a point to see this brilliant work, even if you need to leave after the second act.
