Description
Operatic Bass Curtis Streetman presents an evening of diverse vocal chamber music featuring music by composers George Frideric Handel and Sir Peter Maxwell-Davies

ArtsBridge Lexington's inaugural performance:

The historic Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center, November 8, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

German Georges of Great Britain: Handel and the Mad King

Operatic Bass Curtis Streetman presents an evening of diverse vocal chamber music.  Iconic composer George Frideric Handel was the most famous man of the Seventeenth Century.  A true cosmopolitan, his music is an artistic melting pot that transported opera to a new level of excellence and intimacy.  His influence still resonates today, three and a half centuries later.  The first half of the program explores his early cantatas from Italy, where he honed his craft.

We are proud to present Sir Peter Maxwell-Davies' avant-garde one-act opera, Eight Songs of a Mad King as the second half of our program.  It is well-documented that King George III was obsessed with Handel's fame, and with his music.  It is also known that the monarch was periodically treated for bouts of emotional stress and lapses of lucidity.  The music of Maxwell-Davies and Handel are a natural pairing.
