Handel's Theodora in Manchester

Handel - Theodora
Whilst the London Handel Festival gets into full swing this week, Manchester has its own Handel performances to look forward to as the Royal Northern College of Music is staging Handel's late oratorio Theodora. John Ramster directs, with designs by Bridget Kimak and Roger Hamilton conducts the RNCM Opera Orchestra and RNCM Chorus. The production opens on 24 March and runs until 1 April 2017, it is double cast and you can find the casts on the RNCM website (PDF). 

To coincide with the final performance, on Saturday 1 April 2017, there is a study day at the college offered jointly by the Handel Institute and the RNCM with the opportunity to hear Professor Donald Burrows, Dr Ruth Smith, Professor Colin Timms, Dr Amanda Babington, Dr David Vickers and Dr Cheryll Duncan talking about the opera, followed by a matinee performance. Full details from the RNCM website.
