Handel and Haydn Society
Harry Christophers, Conducting

Continuing his acclaimed cycle of Handel oratorios, Harry Christophers leads all forces in Hercules, the tempestuous tale of the mighty hero returning home from war and reconnecting with the life he left behind. Jealousy, remorse, and one of the greatest mad scenes ever composed—it’s Handel at the peak of his powers.
