Program Notes

For fans of Handel’s most famous work, it’s hard to imagine a more fascinating character to conduct than Nicholas McGegan—unless, of course, you could raise Handel himself to do the job. McGegan is regarded as one of the foremost scholars of early music, and out of his prolific 100+ recording discography, he has released more than 50 albums devoted to the music of Handel. His scholarly obsession with Baroque music informs his wonderfully witty writings and stage commentary, making him a favorite of audiences. Experience this beloved classic in the hands of a master, a joy to be shared this holiday season.

Marian Anderson Hall
Run Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes including intermision
