Inspired by the poetry of 17th-century English writer John Milton, author of the epic Paradise Lost, Handel’s magnificent pastoral ode, L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato (The Cheerful Man, the Thoughtful Man, and the Moderate Man), launches the Curtis Opera Theatre season at the Philadelphia Film Center with a stunning theatrical oratorio led by conductor Nic McGegan and acclaimed director Chas Rader-Schieber. This feast for the senses, featuring a thrilling cast of young opera stars and the renowned Curtis Symphony Orchestra, is a breathtaking collision of darkness and light, innocence and experience, and a celebration of the wonders of nature and the mysteries of life.
L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato is sung in English with English supertitles.
