Handel's comic masterpiece "Partenope" tells the story of one woman and four suitors.
Love's complicated enough when it's between two people — but Rosmira still loves the man who jilted her, Arsace. But he, unfortunately, is in love with Partenope. As are Armindo and Emilio. So what does Rosmira do? She dresses up as a man and becomes another of Partenope's suitors, of course!
And that's before things get really complicated...
Got a question? – Talk about Partenope
