Summary
Handel and his librettists start with the story of Alceste, the queen who dies to save her husband Admeto's life, but is brought back from Hades by the hero Hercules. The storyline is complicated by a rival princess hoping to marry Admeto, the rival princess's own suitors, jealousy and disguise. In this International Handel Festival performance, the stage ditector Doris Dörrie sets the story in samurai Japan, a formal world with strict rules of behaviour
