Atalanta at the Royal College of Music

Richard Morrison [Times Online, 23 April 2008]

By all accounts Handel had a sense of humour. So I'm sure he would have been tickled by this delightful Royal College of Music production (ending the London Handel Festival) that transfers the story of the butch, boar-hunting Princess Atalanta and her clandestine quest for a worthy suitor to a 21st-century seaside resort populated by stroppy adolescents texting each other while hanging morosely round a litter bin. This is possibly the first Handel production in which a football scarf plays a central role.
