G.F. Handel: "Orlando"
Early Music Vancouver presents a thrilling opera-in-concert performance featuring Vancouver's own Pacific Baroque Orchestra and an all-star cast of early music singers. Premiered in 1733, Orlando was composed at the height of Handel's operatic powers, and this performance is the embodiment of his genius. Musically remarkable, emotionally gripping, and performed with consummate skill: it's the summer early music event you won't want to miss.
