Soprano Nardus Williams and guest director Benjamin Bayl join Dunedin Consort for a fiery, all-Handel programme, delving into the extraordinary music he composed while in Rome.

This is where Handel mastered his mature Italian style, its richness and theatricality a defiant reaction to a papal ban on opera that in turn saw his cantatas and oratorios become glorious, virtuosic showcases.
