Composed in 1749, Handel’s “Theodora” did not meet with critical acclaim when it premiered, but present day audiences and scholars widely recognize the dramatic oratorio as a masterpiece. Thomas Morell’s libretto beautifully conveys a story of love, religious persecution and heroic resolve surrounding the fourth century martyr Theodora. Tickets will go on sale in mid-February.
