Serse (Xerxes)

By George Frideric Handel

Production Sponsors: Joan Henkelmann & Keith Chen

Handel’s comedy is a tempest-in-a-teapot tale of misplaced passions. Peter Kozma directs this inventive production full of whimsical imagery, accompanied by a period instrument ensemble led by conductor and harpsichordist Stephen Stubbs, in his Opera Neo debut.
