Handel: Teseo (highlights) / Amanda Forsythe, Amy Freston, Dominique Labelle, Céline Ricci, Robin Blaze, Drew Minter, Jeffrey Fields. Philharmonia Baroque Orch., McGegan (rec. live, 2013)

Notes & Reviews:

Music Director Nicholas McGegan leads Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and an acclaimed cast of soloists in highlights from Teseo, a rarely performed masterpiece of Handelian opera. Writing of the live performance of the opera, the New York Times said, "Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, led by Nicholas McGegan, gave a performance that confirmed its leading position in the field." The cast, led by the glowing soprano Dominique Labelle as the witch Medea and the outstanding lyric soprano Amanda Forsythe in the title role, is buoyed by the brilliance of the orchestra under McGegan's direction. The recording was made in 2013 from live performances at the First Congregational Church in Berkeley California.
