Idyll & Intrigue
May 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Our final program of the season features a delightful cantata a due by the youthful George Frideric Handel. A 1708 commission from the Arcadian Academy, Aminta e Fillide tells the story of two lovers who need a little help from Cupid. Handel fleshes out this endearing pastoral courtship for two voices and strings with great panache and charm. Its arias proved so popular that he reused some of them the very next year in Agrippina. Join us for this timeless retelling of an ageless love story as we bring our 2020/21 Side by Side season to a harmonious conclusion.
On the program:
G. F. Handel, Aminta & Fillide
Lauren Snouffer, soprano
Abigail Fischer, soprano
