London Handel Festival 2017

London Handel Festival 2017, our usual chance to see rising local singers, looks shorter and will begin later this year, stretching between 20 March and 24 April. General booking starts on 31 January.

Highlights:

  • The RCM students are doing a staged Faramondo on 20/21/23/25 March
  • Opera Settecento continues the pasticcio journey with Ormisda on 28 March
  • London Handel Orchestra under Laurence Cummings brings out Bach’s St Matthew Passion (hopefully with period oboe) on 14 April at 14:30
  • Oratorio-wise, there’s an all star Joseph and His Brethren on 24 April
  • Handel could spin some nice duets and this year we have opera,innit? favourite Emilie Renard and 2015 Bucharest Poppea Louise Adler work some magic with La Nuova Musica on 20 April

Come for Handel (and contemporaries), stay for pub grub 😉 I mean, sparkling conversation.
