Ester Liberatrice del Popolo Ebreo by Alessandro Stradella (1639-1682)
February 26, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - March 5, 2020 @ 9:30 pm$25
The Old Testament story of a blustering genocidal despot and the canny queen who resists and brings him down finds voice in one of the most innovative works of the violent, volatile, and tragically short-lived genius Alessandro Stradella.
Please join us for this groundbreaking masterwork by “the Caravaggio of Music” in a return of last year’s critically praised production celebrating the story of a minority’s triumph over religious persecution.
