We celebrate ten years of unrivalled early vocal music with Saffron Hall favourties Iestyn Davies and Lucy Crowe, who head a scintillating Anglo-American cast in what is widely considered to be one of Handel's finest operas.

Led by Harry Bicket and accompanied by The English Concert, this luxurious opera-in-concert features a guest appearance by the Saffron Walden County High School chamber choir.
