Regrettably this concert has been cancelled, as Cecilia Bartoli is suffering from a heavy cold. Ticketholders will be refunded and contacted in due course.
Cecilia Bartoli takes us on a journey through some of Handel's best loved operatic roles.
’It’s just impossible not to enjoy Cecilia Bartoli’s over-the-top sense of spectacle,‘ says Bachtrack, and any performance by Bartoli promises sparkling singing, imaginative repertoire and one of the biggest and most engaging personalities on the concert scene.
