Schlather returns to Hudson Hall with a new and dynamic production of Handel’s Rodelinda – a timeless tale about about love, power, loyalty, tyranny, grief, and ultimately, redemption.

A woman’s husband is missing, maybe dead. Her life as she knew it has disappeared. Villains invade her home, seeking to profit from her loss. To their surprise, she heroically overcomes her grief, defends her child and her home. After her husband’s dramatic reappearance, the evildoers are expelled, and marital order is restored. They begin again.
