George Frideric HandelHandel's brilliance as an opera composer was put to good use when he was forced to write oratorios instead. 'Samson', based on Milton's poem 'Samson Agonistes' which in turn is based on the famous bible story, is reckoned to be one of his finest dramatic works. The well-known arias "Let the bright Seraphim" (for soprano) and "Total eclipse" (for tenor) are often performed separately in concert.
We shall perform this oratorio with an excellent team of soloists and a small baroque orchestra.
Please note: we shall be performing this concert in a location which will be new for the Allegri Singers: All Saints' Church, Rosendale Road, Dulwich.
Please also note: we shall be starting this concert at the earlier than usual time of 7.00pm
