Solo dance and choreography: Tadashi Endo
For Handel’s Admeto, Oscar-nominated film director Doris Dörrie – winner of the 2009 Edinburgh International Festival’s prestigious Herald Angel Award – returns to her beloved subject of Japan. In vividly coloured and brilliantly realized set pieces, one of Handel’s most popular operas receives a stunning transformation into the stylishly ritualized world of samurai culture.
