Händel goes Tinder

Social media clashes with the 18th-century music of G. F. Händel in this new multimedia opera Händel goes Tinder. When single Dorinda is in her twenties, she goes online looking for the love of her life. Best friend Tatiana assists her through thick and thin. Does she find a man worthy of an aria, or does it become an endless parade of losers and "swipe to the left?"

Soprano Channa Malkin and violinist Anastasia Kozlova are the inventors of this new production "Händel goes Tinder". A tragicomic drama directed by Michael Diederich. Various operas by Händel are combined in an exciting and hilarious story. The pure and authentic music in combination with fast and exciting ways of storytelling. A new kind of opera.

The love troubles of various "anti-heroines" from Handel's operas in one character, Dorinda. She takes you through singing, music, and projection in her Tinder adventures and her search for true love. Will this bring her happiness or will she come to a completely different conclusion?

"Handel goes Tinder" wants to inspire and touch you with a catchy, moving but also a funny story. Get to know opera in a way you didn't expect! An overwhelming experience in which opera, comedy and a club evening come together.
