Apollo e Dafne

Thu 10/10/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 46.00-9.50 €

Introduction

Experience rich and dramatic music as performed by a large baroque orchestra. Händel spent several years as a young man in Italy, where he worked with many leading musicians of the time. He later rose to fame in London as a master of Italian opera. Apollo e Dafne is the culmination of the composer’s years in Italy, a drama based on an ancient myth full of singing melodies and glowing orchestral colours.
 
While the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra is on tour, we have invited the Finnish Baroque Orchestra (FiBO) as our guests for the Series III concert on Thursday 10 October.
