Handel La Resurrezione

THE ENGLISH CONCERT
Following our successful recording of Handel’s Opera 'Rodelinda' in September 2020, we plan to record Handel’s 'La Resurrezione' with an all-star cast, including Sophie Bevan and Lucy Crowe, at Sage Gateshead. 'La Resurrezione', composed by Handel in his mid-twenties, and first performed on Easter Sunday in 1708, marked the climax of Handel’s time in Rome. The work details the events between and during Good Friday and Easter Sunday. In 'La Resurrezione', we can already see Handel’s mastery of musical technique in the arias and ensembles as he gives dramatic colour to the different characters in the story.
