Music of Handel, Steffani, and Monteverdi

BEMF’s 25th Anniversary Season comes to a triumphant conclusion with a powerhouse recital of operatic highlights, vocal chamber duets, and personal favorites selected by each artist. In advance of their eagerly anticipated appearances as Poppea and Nerone in BEMF’s June 2015 production of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea, beloved soprano Amanda Forsythe and superstar countertenor David Hansen join forces with BEMF’s Grammy-nominated Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs for a one-of-a-kind concert featuring selections from Monteverdi’s Poppea, sparkling chamber duets by Steffani and Handel, and solo showcases from each performer. This collaboration of world-class artists promises to be a truly unforgettable musical event!
