A beautiful opera, no doubt about it. And it fared much better in the cavernous George R. Brown Convention Center than last week’s La Traviata. Read my review at Houstonia.
A really rare performance of Handel’s Jephtha is happening this weekend. Read my preview of it at Houstonia Magazine. It’s hardly ever performed because it’s straight up technically hard, not because it’s difficult to listen to (like many, many other so-called hidden gems). Listen to this, for example, and get tickets at Ars Lyrica’s website.
