Max Hoehn_HANDEL FURIOSO_UK tour_London/Oxford/Liverpool

Max Hoehn’s Handel Furioso was a music drama based on arias and duets by George Frideric Handel. This new single-act narrative thread was drawn from across the range of Handel’s operas and cantatas, extending to about 80 minutes. Two singers, a soprano and a mezzo-soprano, playing a girl and boy, portrayed the episodes of a lifetime - from the first kiss to mourning for a spouse. Max Hoehn’s carefully crafted and rehearsed pasticcio opera pleased the audience with its innocence and delightful play.
