Too Hot to Handel
Featuring works by George Frederic Handel
Sung in English
This sharp comic take on a tale of two lovers intertwines the most ravishing of Handel’s operatic arias with the highs and lows of a couple’s jealously passionate relationship. With music drawn from Xerxes, Giulio Cesare, Rinaldo and Orlando, the highly talented Armonico Consort interprets baroque music for the 21st century with a typically innovative and individual approach.
The Armonico Baroque Players and Music Director, Christopher Monks, bring to life the intricate charms of Handel’s music, while creator William Towers and soprano Amy Freston star with a fabulous supporting cast.
