a live opera film (2 hrs 26 mins), 2021

Directed and produced by Rebecca Tansley for New Zealand Opera in association with Greenstone TV.

Mythology goes to church in New Zealand Opera's unique staging of Handel's baroque masterpiece inside Auckland's magnificent Holy Trinity Cathedral. 


This site-specific production showcases Handel's exquisitely lyrical music and presents a powerful story of ambition that is as relevant today as it was when written nearly three centuries ago.
