Christopher Hogwood on Handel's Imeneo

In this edition, Catherine Bott talks to AAM founder Christopher Hogwood as he continues his celebrated cycle of Handel operas at the Barbican with a classic but surprising tale of piracy, lost love and a journey to the underworld. Premiered in 1740, Imeneo was Handel's "farewell to Italian opera" and contains all the vivid characterisation and drama he had been perfecting over the previous decade.
