Orlando is a new opera production from the Combattimento Consort Amsterdam, based on the eponymous opera by Handel which premiered in 1733. The story is about the unrequited love of army commander Orlando whose heartbreak is so extreme that it drives him insane. A magician, Zoroastro, is the only one who can save him. Under the musical direction of Jan-Willem de Vriend and director Eva Buchmann the opera will be staged six times, including once in Poland. Ammodo supports Orlando to contribute to the creation of this new opera production.
