Early Music Vancouver is bringing Handel's Apollo e Dafne to Vancouver with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra under the direction of Alexander Weimann.
“In Apollo e Dafne, Handel retells the ancient story of a boastful god’s frustrated love and a determined nymph’s unbending resistance. This dramatic cantata, completed after Handel’s return from Italy, exudes the fresh vitality and self-assurance of a newly famous composer at his homecoming and hints at the future glories of his opera career. Alongside this colourful early work, the Pacific Baroque Orchestra presents Vivaldi’s Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major (”La Notte“) featuring bassonist Nathan Helgeson and Handel’s Overture to Agrippina.”
Date & time: Friday, September 15, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Christ Church Cathedral | 690 Burrard St | Vancouver, BC | V6C 2L1
