La Nuova Musica
Lawrence Zazzo counter-tenor
Join us for a very special New Year Concert as we welcome back the breathtaking Baroque ensemble La Nuova Musica who are joined this time by world-renowned countertenor Lawrence Zazzo. They ring in the New Year, and our spring season, with a sparkling performance of some of Handel’s most celebrated arias, including Va Tacito from Giulio Cesare, Tanti Affanni from Ottone and Vivi Tiranno from Rodelinda, as well as arias and scenes from Coriolano and Vespasian by Atillo Ariosti, unheard since the 18th century. This brilliantly vivid concert promises to blow away those post-Christmas blues and provide the perfect start to 2014.
‘Lawrence Zazzo’s Ottone, sung with beguiling tonal beauty, was a joy throughout.’
