A gripping psychological contest between Tamerlano, the Emperor of the Tartars, and his captive Bajazet, Sultan of the Turks, Tamerlano is the most perfect of Handel’s operas, and a true marriage of drama and music.

It was written in a year of inspired creativity that also saw the composition of Giulio
Cesare
and Rodelinda, and features one of the first major tenor roles in opera. English Touring Opera present Tamerlano in a new production from Artistic Director James Conway, performed with ETO’s period instrument partners The Old Street Band.
