Handel's opera Serse tells the story of the unpredictably obsessive and volatile King Xerxes, a historical character who ruled the Achaemenid Empire from 486 to 465 BC. The plot concerning the rivalry between Xerxes and his brother, Arsamene, for Romilda, however, is entirely fictional, as is the King's betrayal of his fiancé, Amastre. The opera, despite being completed in little more than a month, contains many meticulously crafted arias perfectly tailored to the dramatic storyline. Premiered in 1738 and receiving only five performances, it proved Handel's worst commercial failure and lay neglected for many years, not heard again until 1924. Indeed the work has only recently met with the recognition in deserves, partly thanks to the uncut production mounted at English National Opera to mark the composer's 300th birthday in 1985. Serse is performed by the Early Opera Company under Christian Curnyn, who won a BBC Music Award in 2013 for their recording of Handel's Alceste. They are joined here by a host of excellent soloists including Anna Stéphany as Xerxes, Rosemary Joshua in the role of Romilda, David Daniels as Arsamene, and Hilary Summers as Amastre.
