Rediscover what makes Baroque opera great

A fast-paced mix of comedy and drama, this was Handel at his most innovative – and Tazewell Thompson’s striking and sumptuous production brings out all of its many wonders. The jaw-dropping musicality of countertenor Key’mon Murrah and soprano Lauren Snouffer will make this an unforgettable feast for the senses, with the renowned Handel specialist Jane Glover conducting.
