The Met’s delightful Baroque fantasy returns after its critically acclaimed world-premiere run in 2011–12, bringing together the music of Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell, and other composers, set to a brilliant new English libretto inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Daniels returns to the role of Lichas in the Canadian Opera Company's Production of Hercules.

The ancient Greek tragedian Sophocles was also a war general who knew first-hand the devastating psychological traumas that imperilled returning veterans. With Hercules - Handel's take on Sophocles' play - Sellars creates a healing work in which the untold horrors of war and unspoken complication of reunion find their voice.

Disguises and cross-dressing reveal deep truths about the human heart in Handel's brilliantly entertaining comedy about Queen Partenope of Naples and her three royal suitors, which features on of his greatest scores. In his Olivier Award-winning production, director Christopher Alden moves the action to 1920s Paris, and the results are never less than riveting.
