Iestyn Davies
From Fear to Faith

Haymarket Opera Orchestra
March 9, 2019
Old St. Patrick's Church

Internationally renowned countertenor Iestyn Davies most recently wowed New York audiences with his portrayal of the baroque era’s “rockstar” castrato Farinelli in Farinelli and the King on Broadway. In the 2018 -2019 season Davies will sing with the Glyndebourne Festival, the Metropolitan Opera, and Lyric Opera in repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary works.

Bach’s cantatas for alto take us on a musical journey from fear and uncertainty to conviction in faith. Experience the genius of Bach as Iestyn Davies sings some of the master's most daring and inventive music. You’ll hear the gorgeous strings of the Haymarket Opera Orchestra with guest oboist Stephen Bard and organist/harpsichordist Andrew Rosenblum. Artistic Director Craig Trompeter leads the ensemble and takes a turn as soloist in Telemann’s delightful Suite in D Major for viola da gamba and strings.
