Opera Double Bill: Handel & Blow
3 – 10 June, Milton Court Theatre

Guildhall School’s award-winning Opera department presents a double bill of early operatic works exploring romantic love: pursuit and passion, happiness and heartbreak.

Handel’s pastoral cantata follows Aminta on his campaign to woo the nymph, Fillide. The theme of Cupid’s arrow also runs through John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, composed for the court of King Charles II and considered by many to be the earliest known English opera.
