One of his last and most intriguing operas, Handel’s Serse is a comic work exploring love, lust for power, and sibling rivalry. Presented by SFCM Historical Performance, this fast-paced opera will be sung in Italian with English supertitles accompanied by the period instrument SFCM Baroque Ensemble, featuring students from the Voice program.
