The Queensland Choir presents:
GEORG FRIEDRICH HÄNDEL
Composed within a few weeks of the completion of Messiah, Samson tells the story of the legendary Israelite warrior, his dramatic downfall and the terrible vengeance he wreaks upon his enemies. Richly orchestrated and full of brilliant arias (including Let the bright Seraphim and Total Eclipse), and superb choruses that range from the solemnly dignified to the carefree and hedonistic, Samson is one of Handel’s most theatrical masterpieces.
This powerful oratorio will be brought to life by Queensland’s premier chorus The Queensland Choir and a superb cast of soloists including Jaewoo Kim (tenor) as Samson, Leanne Kenneally (soprano), Amy Wilkinson (soprano), David Hibbard (bass) and Brett Holland (bass), with the Sinfonia of St Andrews conducted by Kevin Power.
A magnificent afternoon of brilliant music for lovers of the Baroque. Not to be missed!
