Handel’s most famous duets come to passionate life in this dramatic baroque program that’s received rave reviews nationwide. Symphony Nova Scotia joins forces with soprano powerhouse Ellen McAteer and the “extraordinary” Daniel Taylor, one of the top countertenors in the world, to present a moving selection of duets from Handel’s most popular operas. Experience highlights from Rinaldo, Tolomeo, Theodora, Rodelinda, and Julius Caesar in a rare East Coast performance of this breathtaking baroque event.
