NYC: AICF – Handel’s Esther

May 4 @ 8:00 PM

AICF

The Salon/Sanctuary Chamber Orchestra, Chorus, and Soloists Pedro d’Aquino, Music Director.  Hebrew Libretto by Jacob Saravall, arranged by Shalev Ad El

Georg Friedrich Handel (1685 – 1759) set the story of Esther twice – in a privately presented masque in 1718 and a publicly presented oratorio in 1732. The story of the biblical heroine, set in English and received well at its public performance at the King’s Theatre in Haymarket, London, joined a body of Old Testament oratorios in English for which the German-born, Italian-trained composer is revered.
