MasterVoices | Doug Varone and Dancers | New York Baroque Incorporated | Ted Sperling, Conductor
Music by GEORGE Frideric Handel, and Nico Bentley (Handel Remixed)
Conceived and Choreographed by Doug Varone
MasterVoices reunites with frequent artistic collaborator Doug Varone (Dido and Aeneas, Lady in the Dark) for the NYC premiere of Varone’s To My Arms / Restore. This two-part work is set to a suite of exquisite operatic arias by Handel, and his choral work “Dixit Dominus”. Part 1: To My Arms features eight dancers and a score of gorgeous Handel arias, sung live by five soloists, accompanied by musicians from the New York Baroque Incorporated orchestra, conducted by MV Artistic Director Ted Sperling. Part 2: Restore will feature the dancers and orchestra plus 100+ members of the MasterVoices Chorus, singing the choral masterwork “Dixit Dominus”, layered with Festival Voices and Nico Bentley’s electronic “Handel Remixed”.
Varone is at the height of his powers with this intimate, explosive, post-pandemic piece. Don’t miss 75 riveting minutes of performance like nothing you’ve ever seen!
