Published by the young Handel in 1707 at the peak of his inspiration, this landmark chamber opera tells of a soul tempted by pleasure and longing for grace. In our final Gala of the 2014 season, Les Voix Baroques and all-star soloists Amanda Forsythe, Krisztina Szabó, Reginald L. Mobley, and Colin Balzer perform Handel’s first oratorio: a moral-religious allegory and early study of human psychology, with themes that resonate to this day.
