OLIVIA VERMEULEN at the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival and in Moscow

The versatile mezzo-soprano Olivia Vermeulen starts the new season with two works by George Frideric Handel: for the first time at the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival, she can be heard there on 7 September in Handel's oratorio Judas Maccabaeus, firstly performed in 1747. A top-class ensemble of singers, together with the orchestra B'Rock lead by Bart Naessens, proves that this oratorio is still one of the most important masterpieces that music history has produced in the genre.
