Handel Birthday Concert

Handel Birthday Concert

Join us to celebrate Handel’s musical legacy with an opera inspired by the alleged adventures of Giacomo Girolomo Casanova (1725-1798) and given new life in a libretto by Stephen Pettitt.

Julian Perkins has arranged music by Handel, Vivaldi & their contemporaries to create this brand new opera. David Wilson-Johnson as ‘Old Casanova’ acts as narrator, telling the story of his early seduction by a young woman, his meetings with the rich and influential, his escape from a notorious Venetian prison and the touching tale of what was, perhaps, his one true love affair. 

Casanova Singers

William Towers is ‘Young Casanova’ and other characters in the story will be sung by Augusta Hebbert, Anna Starushkevych and Andrew Davies. Julian Perkins directs Sounds Baroque.

The evening will also include our Grand Prize Draw with wonderful prizes to be won, wine reception and buffet.

Tickets can be purchased online below where a booking fee will be added to the total.

Tickets can also be purchased over the phone by calling 0207 520 0344, this will include no booking fee.
