Berwick Festival Opera and Byre Opera present Xerxes – Handel
Berwick Festival Opera is delighted to host the latest beautifully sung and stunningly designed production from this acclaimed young company, Byre Opera.
Their fully staged production offers a contemporary take on Handel’s classic tragicomedy (which includes one of Handel’s best-known melodies often know as his ‘Largo’) and is sung in Nicholas Hyntner’s English translation.
Accompanied by a professional period-instrument orchestra led by the Fitzwilliam String Quartet, Xerxes is conducted by Michael Downes.
Address: The Maltings, Eastern Lane, Berwick upon Tweed, TD15 1AJ
