Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra

George Frideric Handel: Apollo e Dafne

Join the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, led by BEMF Orchestra Director Robert Mealy and harpsichordist Avi Stein, for a rare performance of Handel’s cantata Apollo e Dafne. An ambitious work from the composer’s early career, this masterpiece foreshadows his extensive operatic success with a vividly theatrical story drawn from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. The arrogant god Apollo is cursed to fall hopelessly in love with the beautiful nymph Daphne, forcing her to rebuff his increasingly fervent advances before escaping through a magical metamorphosis in a musically thrilling sequence featuring some of the young Handel’s most inventive and captivating writing. To bring this mythological drama to life, BEMF welcomes back two of our most beloved soloists: soprano Amanda Forsythe and baritone Jesse Blumberg. Rounding out the program will be a selection of Handel’s gorgeous early concerti grossi and his sublime Passacaglia from Terpsichore.

Handel scholar Ellen T. Harris will illuminate the brilliance of Handel's Apollo e Dafne in an engaging pre-concert talk beginning at 7pm.
