Early Music Vancouver presents the Pacific Baroque Orchestra and Grammy award-winning soprano Amanda Forsythe in wildly virtuosic operatic arias and instrumental works by Handel and His Rivals on Friday, September 16, 2016 at 7:30pm at Christ Church Cathedral. “Possessed of astounding technique, deep musicality, and undeniable charm.”(Opera News), American lyric soprano Amanda Forsythe will perform arias from beloved Handel operas as well as arias from operas by Porpora, Hasse, and Veracini – all talented composers from London’s “Opera of the Nobility” who briefly put Handel out of business. Accompanying Forsythe is the Juno-nominated Pacific Baroque Orchestra, led by Vancouver’s own beloved conductor Alexander Weimann.
