In Conversation: Handel & Blow Opera Double Bill In Conversation: Guildhall School podcasts

    • Education

Cast members Harriet Burns and Siân Dicker give us the inside track on this term's opera double bill of early operatic works exploring romantic love: Aminta e Fillide by George Frideric Handel and Venus and Adonis by John Blow.

We talk about these two very contrasting but thematically linked operas, exploring comedy and tragedy in a double bill, and performing opera in Milton Court Theatre.

Our opera double bill runs from 3-10 June in the Milton Court Theatre. Tickets are available via the Barbican Box Office (https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2019/event/opera-double-bill-aminta-e-fillide-venus-and-adonis).
