Handel by Candle
Cathy Bell (mezzo-soprano) will deliver a lecture-recital that explores light in the 18th century from the journey to the theatre and the stage where Handel’s operas were performed.
Cathy Bell (mezzo-soprano) will deliver a lecture-recital that explores light in the 18th century. Going to the opera, a night-time activity, involved candles to not only light the stage but also the journey to and from the opera house. Cathy will sing examples from a selection of Handel operas with George Ross (cello) and Marie van Rhijn (harpsichord) to illuminate this forgotten experience.
This event is part of the UK-wide Museums at Night festival.
