This 1675 oratorio tells the story of the death of John the Baptist with great flair and vivid drama. The prodigiously gifted Italian composer Alessandro Stradella took no prisoners in life or in art: his vocal lines, by turns acrobatic and deeply expressive, resemble his brief but spectacular career.

The cast for the Houston premiere of San Giovanni Battista includes counter-tenor Jay Carter in the title role, soprano Sherezade Panthaki as Herodiade, and bass-baritone Sam Handley as Herod.
