Caramoor: Handel's Theodora
3:00pm / Join us for a lecture with MIT professor emeritus and Handel scholar Ellen T. Harris.
Theodora stands out as one of Handel’s finest creations. Composed in 1749 at the twilight of his career, this penultimate major work was undervalued at the time but recognized now as the masterpiece it is. An oratorio brimming with dramatic intensity (and often staged as an opera), Theodora traces the tragic tale of the eponymous Christian martyr facing persecution at the hands of the Romans. This concert performance — with Trinity Wall Street’s magnificent period-instrument Orchestra and Choir — features a stellar roster of celebrated soloists including Anthony Roth Costanzo and Marie-Eve Munger.
For those who prefer a more casual concert environment, Garden Listening tickets are $20, and are free for Members and children under 18 years old. Listen to the concert broadcast onto Friends Field (audio only) while enjoying a picnic, admiring a starry sky, or relaxing with the family. We recommend you bring your own seating for Garden Listening.
