Handel: Theodora

A collaboration with the EMSI, Early Music Vancouver and the Seattle Early Music Guild Featuring some of Handel’s most glorious music, Theodora depicts the self-sacrificial love between a Christian virgin and a Roman imperial bodyguard. It serves as a timeless parable of spiritual resistance to tyranny and an indictment of persecution. Performed by 28 instrumentalists, 40 singers, and five international soloists. “Handel doesn’t miss a trick in creating spectacular choral effects; neither did music director Alexander Weimann in bringing them to life with theatrical cunning and an all-embracing sense of joy” The Vancouver Sun
