In Handel’s oratorio Belshazzar, the reckless and inebriated crown prince of Babylonia faces the inglorious downfall of his empire. Dramatic recitatives, overwhelming choruses and heartrending arias: this is Handel at his very best. With this internationally acclaimed production, Ottavio Dantone and his Accademia Bizantina conclude a delirious edition of the MAfestival.
