Don't fall under her spell

Welcome to Alcina's island paradise. All men who set foot there fall under her spell, but soon discover it's all an illusion: Alcina is an enchantress whose island is nothing but a barren wasteland peopled by her discarded lovers who she has turned into animals, rocks and trees. When handsome knight Ruggiero appears, Alcina experiences true love for the first time. But when Ruggiero's fiancée arrives on a mission to rescue him, Alcina's magic is tested to breaking point…

Handel's bewitching tale of deception, seduction, love and loss is bursting with heart-melting music, such as Ruggiero's regretful farewell to the beauty of Alcina's island. But to whom is he saying goodbye, and who will pay the ultimate sacrifice?
