The program will feature virtuosic arias for soprano composed by G.F. Handel for the Royal Academy of Music, as well as arias written by less well known rival composers like Bononcini, Hasse, and Porpora. These rival works were all performed at the Opera of the Nobility, a company which managed, if only briefly, to put Handel out of business. Well known, arias will include ‘Mio caro bene’ and ‘Se’l mio duol’ from Handel’s opera Rodelinda as well as ‘Da tempeste’ and ‘Piangero’ from Giulio Cesare.
A pair of tickets to Handel and his Rivals at Christ Church Cathedral on September 16, 2016 at 7:30pm.
