The Choice - Operas by Handel and Toby Young

  • Royal College of Music Britten Theatre SW7 2BS (map)

Christine will perform in the chorus.

Handel The Choice of Hercules
Toby Young New commission
Handel A duet and choruses from Solomon

Vocal Futures’ new production with The English Concert is a rarely performed gem in Handel’s repertoire, The Choice of Hercules

The evening will also centre around a new work by Toby Young (twice winner of the BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year), specially commissioned for this production to reflect on Handel’s legacy.

With a selection of rousing choruses and a sumptuous duet from Handel’s Solomon, this promises to be an evening of decadence set amongst revellers at Hercules’ 21st birthday party.  It will enthral and tantalise the senses, ending with Hercules’ choice between Pleasure or Virtue!
