Alexander Weimann returns to Seattle to direct an orchestra and chorus of 40 in Handel’s penultimate oratorio, featuring soprano Nathalie Paulin, mezzo-soprano Krisztina Szabo, counter-tenor Lawrence Zazzo, tenor Zachary Wilder, and bass Matthew Brook. Based on the story of a fourth-century Christian martyr and her lover, Theodora was Handel’s personal favorite among his works, though it received only three performances in his lifetime. This event marks the first project of Northwest Baroque Masterworks, a collaboration of Early Music Guild, Early Music Vancouver, and Early Music Society of the Islands (Victoria). Join us for a preconcert lecture at 7:00 pm.
