Show Description

Presented by Ars Lyrica Houston

Handel’s final masterpiece tells the story of Theodora, an early Christian martyr, who is persecuted by a corrupt and wicked Roman president. Bacchanal and piety compete in this deeply moving oratorio, which features five soloists, chorus, and orchestra. Its central message, that faith triumphs over death, is common across religious traditions.

Featured artists:
Nola Richardson (Theodora)
Cecilia Duarte (Irene)
Douglas Williams (Valens)
Cody Bowers (Didymus)*
Brian Giebler (Septimus)*
The Moores School Concert Chorale

*Ars Lyrica debut

Ars Lyrica’s 2024/25 season celebrates one of music’s principal virtues: across eras and cultures, it creates durable Ties that Bind. Some of our subscription programs highlight shared values or belief systems while others establish links across geographic and temporal boundaries. Each has a distinct focus, with the entire season spanning some four centuries of European and American history. Fore more information, please visit the Ars Lyrica Houston website.
