Soprano Hye Jung Lee from South Korea sings Tornami a vagheggiar from Handel’s Alcina in the 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World final.

Alcina is a sorceress who has fallen in love with the knight Ruggiero and held him captive on her magical island. Bradamante is Ruggiero’s fiancée and has come disguised as her brother to rescue him, but Alcina has cast a spell on Ruggiero to make him believe that ‘he’ is his love rival. Alcina's sister Morgana has now fallen in love with Bradamante, and here commands 'him' to stay with her.
