Faramondo is a spicy tale of warring houses and love triangles, written in 1737 with Handel at the
peak of his creative powers. The libretto by Apostelo Zeno tells of Pharamond, the 5th century ruler
of legend, reputedly the first King of France, and the many superb arias and duets make this one of
Handel’s more mature works which has been undeservedly overshadowed.

The opera was first performed at the King's Theatre, in the Haymarket in London, on 3 January 1738.
There were eight performances at the time, and it was not revived until the 20th century, although
individual arias from the opera continued to be performed.

Laurence Cummings will conduct the exceptional singers of the RCM International Opera School and
the London Handel Orchestra, and we welcome back as Director William Relton, whose international
career includes Drottningholm, English National Opera and two previous productions in the London Handel Festival.
