53rd street handel

operamission opens its eighth season with:

53rd Street Handel

…a new series of free concerts at the recently reopened and renovated 53rd Street Library in its fresh and inspiring theater space in the main entrance at 18 West 53rd in Manhattan.

In a concert of scenes and arias from G. F. Handel’s Italian operas, we present an original mini-pastiche with voices and period instruments.53rd st handel logo

Drop by the Library right before closing time. Our first concert is at 7:15pm on
Wednesday, September 21. Just head in the front entrance across 53rd from MoMA and Saint Thomas Episcopal Church and you’ll find us!

All concerts are free and open to the public, and the perfect chance to
experience your first taste of Handel opera if you never have. We are presenting 60 minutes of luxurious character-filled drama from both lesser-known and favorites of Handel’s output.
