The Egmont Overture, an impassioned cry of
freedom and victory, begins a concert that features the composer's expansive

Stephen Sondheim's brilliant work is a cynical, sentimental, scabrous sex comedy in which couples fall noisily apart and re-configure themselves, possibly for the better. The lovers' struggles provoke plenty of witty commentary from the characters who are too young, too old, or too wise to participate in the madness. Ryan Turner conducts and Lynn Torgove directs this semi-staged production of one of the great 20th century operettas. more. . .

Emmanuel Music presents the
Boston premiere of Handel's oratorio Susanna.
This late work, composed two years before Handel's death, tells the story of
Susanna and the Elders, a tale of faith, virtue, and justice. This allegory of
the chaste matron, the corrupt judges, and the boy prophet Daniel who exposes
their hypocrisy, symbolizes God's protection of his faithful in adversity.
Handel's orchestral writing teems with natural phenomena: birds, beasts,
breezes, floods, and of course, the rich inner world of its virtuous steadfast
heroine. more . . .
