Our 2014/15 season finale provides abundant vocal and instrumental fireworks, with Alexander’s Feast—Or, The Power of Music by G.F. Handel, produced in collaboration with the Bach Society Houston. This remarkable musical tale relates how the rapturous song of a musician named Timotheus aroused and moved Alexander the Great. Ars Lyrica is proud to present this rarely heard oratorio, which makes for a formidable evening of music and story—an event you won’t want to miss!
