Handel: The Choice of Hercules

St George’s, Hanover Square, London
7:00 pm, Monday, 14 November, 2011


Pegasus joined a stellar line-up of vocal and instrumental talent for a performance of Handel’s one-act oratorio, first performed at London’s Covent Garden Theatre in 1751. The piece gloriously depicts the youthful Hercules as he chooses between the paths of pleasure and virtue.

This hour-long benefit concert for the London Handel Festival 2012 began with one of Handel’s instrumental sonatas.
