Gala Concert

with Christophe Dumaux

The New York Times acclaimed his Tolomeo: “The French countertenor Christophe Dumaux steals every scene he’s in.” At the 2019 Göttingen International Handel Festival the famous singer will be appearing as a soloist in the Gala Concert – for the first time since his debut in 2004! In St. Jacobi, he will be singing a programme featuring arias from Handel’s operas such as Orlando, Rinaldo, Giulio Cesare and Ariodante. He will be accompanied by the much-lauded FestspielOrchester Göttingen, conducted by Laurence Cummings, which will also be performing well-known works such as the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and Handel’s Concerto grosso No. 8.

The concert venue is accessible with help. For further information on Festival venue accessibility, please see the overview.

This concert is being made possible by a generous private donation.
