Penny Gore presents the conclusion of Poro, re dell'Indie, as part of Radio 3's complete cycle of Handel operas.

Queen Cleofide thinks Poro is dead, and is about to marry Alexander the Great. Poro appears at the wedding ceremony just in time to save the couple from making a big mistake, and in relief at his escape, Alexander doesn't kill anyone. But will Poro and Cleofide live happily ever after?
