Boston Baroque: Handel's "Partenope"

Friday, Oct 19, 2012 7:30p

For audiences accustomed to Handel’s serious operas, Partenope will be a charming departure. It’s a comic romp of jilted lovers, hidden identities, and gorgeous arias.

Starring Amanda Forsythe as Partenope with Owen Willetts as Arsace, Kirsten Sollek, contralto as Rosmira, David Trudgen, countertenor as Armindo, Aaron Sheehan, tenor as Emilio, and Andrew Garland, baritone as Ormonte.

Created by BostonBaroque

Boston Baroque: Handel's "Partenope"

"The best singing I heard in Boston all year." Berkshire Fine Arts writing about Owen Willetts in Boston Baroque's Orfeo ed Euridice, May 2012
