Buy Tickets SOLD OUT!

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.

About Orlando

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.

Who We Are

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.
