A fully staged Handel opera in a 50-seat theater. March 15, 2014, 7:30pm
We’ve joined our talents to present our first show: Handel’s epic 1732 magic opera, Orlando, in a fully-staged show on March 15, 2014 at the 50-seat Boxcar Theatre in San Francisco.
Handel’s operas are often presented in concert version and rarely staged. We’re ready to bring you this special experience in a friendly and intimate 50-seat environment.
Orlando loves Angelica, but he’s a soldier torn between love and duty. Angelica loves Medoro, Dorinda is obsessed with Medoro, but Medoro only returns one of these ladies’ affections. Zoroastro is the powerful magician running the show. And somehow these conflicts are all resolved through gorgeous music that only Handel could have written.
We’ve performed with groups such as MUSA, Clerestory, SFCM Baroque, SacroProfano, Vinaccesi, the Handel Opera Project, American Bach Soloists and at the Amherst Early Music Festival.
Special thanks to our donors, who made this production possible!
