Handel's Almira at the 2013 Boston Early Music Festival
Boston Early Music Festival's AlmiraGeorge Frederic Handel’s 1704 opera Almira: Königen von Castilien (“Almira, Queen of Castile”) was written when the composer was only 19 years old. A compelling and brilliant piece in its own right, the opera also foreshadows the later work of one of history's greatest composers for the stage.
