An opera in three acts, “Orlando Paladino” was Joseph Haydn’s most successful opera. A heroic comedy based on Ariosto’s epic poem, “Orlando Furioso,” “Orlando Paladino” sees Angelica, queen of Cathay, and her lover, Medoro, flee to a remote castle to get away from Orlando, paladin of France, who is madly in love with Angelica. Angelica asks a sorceress, Alcina, for help. Add to that a shepherdess, a squire and Rodomonte, the king of Barbery, and anything is likely to happen.
