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 include Nola Richardson, soprano (Theodora); Cecilia Duarte, mezzo-soprano (Irene); Douglas Williams, bass-baritone (Valens); Cody Bowers, countertenor (Didymus); Brian Giebler, tenor (Septimus); and The Moores School Concert Chorale.
