English Touring Opera Autumn tour

ETO have announced their autumn tour, a delectable pairing of Handel's Teseo with Haydn's L'Infedelta Delusa (done in English as Country Matters). The Handel opera is headlined by distinguished American counter-tenor Derek Lee Ragin, with sopranos Jeni Bern and Gail Pearson. Though Teseo is the title role, the opera is dominated by the sorceress Medea. I last saw it at Covent Garden in a performance given by Lina Lalandi's English Bach Festival with Sarah Walker as a coruscating Medea.
