SFCM Historical Performance Opera presents Serse
One of his last and most intriguing operas, Handel’s Serse is both a dramatic and comic work of love, power and war, set in Persia and with multiple love triangles. Presented by the SFCM Historical Performance program, and performed by students from the Voice program and Baroque Ensemble, SFCM’s production of this fast-paced opera will be sung in Italian.
