July 15 - August 18, 2017
G.F. Handel/Nicol Minato & Silvio Stampiglia
Countertenor John Holiday returns in the title role of one of the most brilliant scores in the Baroque repertory. History's fierce Persian conqueror turns his attention to domestic affairs in a plot in which romantic attraction threatens to obliterate fraternal loyalty.
Presented in Italian with projected English text.
