Director/designer Patrick Young mixes baroque conventions and 21st century technology in this hauntingly effective version of Handel’s opera. Ashiq Aziz gets gorgeous sounds from his original instrument-playing orchestra and a fine crop of singers, while Young’s staging and a video backdrop add layers of dramatic subtext.
