The Swedish Nightingale: Arias of Vivaldi, Handel, Torri, and Broschi
In 1850, the famed showman P. T. Barnum arranged for an American tour of the most famous opera singer of Europe—the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind. Now, 170 years later, fellow Swede and leading mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg follows in her footsteps with a triumphant program of gorgeously passionate Baroque arias by Vivaldi, Handel, and others. She makes her BEMF concert stage début appearing with “one of the world’s most adventurous and dramatic period instrument ensembles” (NPR) and frequent guests of BEMF, the Venice Baroque Orchestra, for this thrillingly energetic and profoundly theatrical repertoire from these Baroque masters.

Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm.
