About

For medici.tv's 3,000th live broadcast, we are delighted to bring you a concert performance of one of the masterpieces of Baroque music, performed by a top-notch cast including Lisette Oropesa and Joyce DiDonato! 

In an oeuvre full of gorgeous melodies and ingenious orchestration, Theodora stands out as one of Handel’s finest creations. Composed in 1749 at the twilight of his career when Handel was 64, this penultimate major work would be the composer’s favorite from among the dozens of oratorios he had written, undervalued in his day but recognized now as the masterpiece it is. Brimming with dramatic intensity, Theodora traces the tragic tale of the eponymous Christian martyr facing persecution at the hands of the Romans.
