The Tempest is a semi-opera of incidental music by Henry Purcell and others, to an adaptation of Shakespeare’s play of the same name by John Dryden, Sir William Davenant and Thomas Shadwell. The opera begins with a duet of two devils who sing about “the black fiend Ambition residing with the mischievous Devil of Pride in the lowest and darkest caverns of Hell!” A sprightly 4-part chorus ensues singing of the eternal flames of Hell. This is followed by a bass solo tour de force of florid semiquaver passages which conjure up the Tempest itself. The music continues with
lilting soprano and tenor airs, interspersed with delightful short choruses and concludes with a ravishing duet for soprano and bass “No stars again shall hurt you” which the choir recapitulates.

La Resurrezione - by Handel

Details: Tickets Waged $35, Unwaged $30, Students $10, Groups 6+ save $5 each

La Resurrezione is one of Handel's most original, spectacular and richly orchestrated oratorios. Recorders, trumpets, and a viola da gamba are all required, additional to the usual strings and woodwind. Fiery interchanges abound between Lucifer and an Angel with appropriately thrilling musical effects. The opening arresting aria sung by the Angel is breathtaking in its demands of the singer and orchestra.
