A dramatic, semi staged performance of one of Handel’s lesser known masterpieces, Belshazzar, portraying the downfall of the blasphemous and debauched King of Babylon at the hands of the Emperor Cyrus. Video Jockey Gemma Briars will be mixing a combination of live and recorded video feed that will be projected behind the performers.

This is the second operatic collaboration between Camerata and the RNCM, following the outstanding success of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas last season.
