Orlando has one of those quintessentially goofy Baroque opera plots, but it is partially sustained, at least, by some of Handel's most beautiful arias. Mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon as Orlando sings well enough in a technical sense, but is on the dull side dramatically. The rest of the cast is more interesting, particularly Harry van der Kamp as the magician Zoroastro, and the sweet-voiced Rosa Mannion as Dorinda. It's really William Christie's show, of course, and his conducting of his talented ensemble is one of the best things about this recording. --Sarah Bryan Miller
