BEMF’s own GRAMMY Award–winning Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs lead an outstanding cast of 8 internationally renowned singers and the 27 all-star instrumentalists of our famed BEMF Orchestra in a grand concert performance of Handel’s first opera, Almira! Originally presented at the June 2013 Festival, Almira tells a vivid story of intrigue and romance at the Court of Castile. Written when Handel was only 19 years old, Almira already illustrates the genius that would cement his legacy as one of history’s greatest composers. This is truly an extraordinary event you simply won’t want to miss!
