Andrew Griffiths will guest direct Early Opera Company next week at Wigmore Hall in a concert performance of Handel La Resurrezione as Christian Curnyn is unwell.
Written at the culmination of the young Handel’s years of study in Italy, the oratorio is one of his most vibrant and moving works.
With virtuoso arias, heart-breaking laments, duets and choruses, Handel portrays the resurrection through the sorrow and subsequent jubilation of Christ’s closest followers, while depicting the fierce battle between Heaven and Hell.
Join Claire Booth, Mhairi Lawson, Hilary Summers, Benjamin Hulett and Callum Thorpe, as we take you on an intimate journey through sorrow and joy.
There are a very few tickets remaining in each area of the hall: book now via Wigmore Hall box office or call 020 7935 2141.
