HANDEL: Orlando (opera in concert)
In Italian with English supertitles

Pre-concert lecture by Raymond Erickson, "The Magic of Handel's Orlando," at 2:45 in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse

In this concert performance, San Francisco’s Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra presents Handel’s opera Orlando, a tragic love story. This ensemble is renowned for its dedication to historically informed renderings of the Baroque, and here, that dedication brings shimmering life to one of the most striking works Handel ever composed.

“As is clear from watching Music Director Nicholas McGegan bounce around the podium, Handel rocks.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“America’s premier period-instrument ensemble.”
Los Angeles Times
