Famous on both sides of the Atlantic for his role in Farinelli and the King, London Unwrapped’s Artist in Residence countertenor Iestyn Davies sings a feast of Handel’s London altos. In collaboration with Peter Whelan and The English Concert he has devised a programme that takes us through Handel’s different London venues: opera theatre, churches and private houses.

Davies will perform music written for both London’s castrati and female altos, including arias from operas such as Giulio Cesare and Alcina, and powerful oratorios such as Theodora, as well as anthems, pastorals and cantatas, interwoven with the composer’s inimitable orchestral dances and sinfonias.

This concert was originally scheduled for 6 May 2021.
