Seize a rare opportunity to hear Handel’s majestic oratorio, Solomon. Alex Ross of The New Yorker deemed Act III “Handel’s genius at its vertiginous height . . . [a] temple of sound, which has withstood the centuries and shines brighter than ever.” Led by the “exquisite” (Opera News) singing of Sarah Nelson Craft in the title role, Amor Artis, in collaboration with our friends, the “truly excellent” (New York Times) dynamos of New York Baroque, Inc., will present this famous story of wisdom and judgment, which features some of Handel’s grandest choruses. Join us at the beautiful space at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral.
