So much Baroque, you can't Handel it. (Yeah, we went there.)
Baroque fans, this one’s for you. Conductor Harry Bicket and The English Concert make their first LA Opera appearance (complete with a period instrument orchestra) in a concert performance of Handel’s masterpiece Tamerlano. Countertenor Bejun Mehta sings the title role to life, from enslavement to infidelity, in this psychological thriller.
Tickets available now or as part of a Spring 2021 subscription package.
"Bicket and The English Concert were nothing short of brilliant. Sporting perfectly tight ensemble, spacious and ringing tone, a variety of colors, gleaming strings and clean, forceful brass, they are the model of a period chamber orchestra in every sense."
