Händel, Almira und die Hamburger Gänsemarkt-Oper
Renowned musicologist Prof. Dr. Hans Joachim Marx, Handel expert and friend of the Festival for many years now, has conceived a concert programme based on Almira, Handel’s very first work for the stage. In this year’s Stiftungskonzert, excerpts from Handel’s only surviving German-language opera are juxtaposed with earlier arrangements of the material. The Abchordis Ensemble with the soprano Marie Lys will be presenting this chamber concert in the University’s Great Hall.
The venue is barrier-free. For further information on Festival venue accessibility. Please see the overview.
