Ars Lyrica Houston presents Idyll & Intrigue
Ars Lyrica presents its final program of the season, featuring a cantata a due by George Frideric Handel. A 1708 commission from the Arcadian Academy, Aminta e Fillide tells the story of two lovers who need a little help from Cupid. Handel fleshes out this endearing pastoral courtship for two voices and strings with great panache and charm. Its arias proved so popular that he reused some of them the very next year in Agrippina.
The concert will feature Abigail Fischer, soprano and Lauren Snouffer, soprano.
