by George Frideric Handel
September 29 - October 2, 2018
An action-packed mix of tragedy and comedy that flopped at its 1738 premiere, this masterpiece has become one of Handel’s most beloved staged operas. Xerxes, monarch of ancient Persia, pursues his brother’s girlfriend Romilda while his financée Amastre schemes to win back his love. See what happens when he doesn’t get what he wants. HOC favorite Suzanne Lommler stars and Sarah Edgar directs.
