This is an interesting addition to the Handel catalogue, a newly reconstructed version of a pasticcio that survives only in part. The work of course recycles music from other (and often rather obscure, like Berenice) Handel operas but interestingly incorporates some departures from the opera seria norm in the inclusion of several choruses - probably, as the notes indicate, an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the English oratorios. The notes also go briefly discuss the surviving text, the need to make editorial choices from other operas when the evidence is conjectural, and the composition of new recitatives for Acts II and III since the originals are lost.
The music also includes authentic ariosos that Handel newly composed for this work and poses interesting questions about how Handelian opera would have evolved if the London public had been more appreciative. Despite incorporating earlier material, Handel's work is leading in new directions.
Frankly, I'm not familiar with the performers but they do justice to the music. The SACD sound is very good indeed. I do not place this on the list of essentials - the dramatic masterpieces like Ariodante, Alcina, Guilio Cesare, and Rodelinda, for example, but for those already acquainted with the "canon" this makes for an interesting exploration.
If you are interested, buy it while it is available as these cottage labels can be difficult to obtain.
