The conquering Hercules returns from battle
bringing the captive daughter of his defeated enemy.
Freeing the beautiful princess, he ignites the suspicions of his wife…
Handel’s version of Hercules is not a retelling of mythical figures and heroic deeds, but an extraordinary study in marital jealousy. Forget your preconceptions about baroque music, this is passion and drama in the hands of a master.
Starring Christopher Richardson and Christina Wilson, whose expressive performances have so impressed in our earlier Handel oratorios. Don’t miss it!
Tickets are on sale through Canberra Ticketing.
