BAROQUE LOVE SONGS + OTHER DELIGHTS

MAR 22 + 24

Overview

Give in to the beauty and passion of these Baroque gems from Handel, Porpora, and Alessandro Scarlatti. Led by new H+H Artistic Director Jonathan Cohen in his only appearances this season at NEC’s intimate Jordan Hall, the captivating program of works that H+H has never performed before stars opera icon Robin Johanssen—”an exceptional singer: for warmth and beauty of tone and lightness of touch, she leaves little to be desired” (Boston Classical Review)—and Christopher Lowrey, “a voice of pure honey” (Limelight Magazine). This winter, come in from the cold and warm your heart.
