From the moment the young English tenor James Beard first performed with Handel in 1734, the composer began fashioning roles for him. This led to a new idea – the tenor as Oratorio’s leading man. Until this moment, sopranos and castrati dominated the operatic stage. As Handel invented and shaped the English Oratorio, and took advantage of John Beard’s special talents, he was able to compose pieces that, to this day, define the elements of this genre. With GRAMMY award-winning tenor, Aaron Sheehan PMW creates a portrait of this historical character with some of Handel’s most glorious music.

Breathtaking – a voice and cornetto entwined Seattle, WA, United States +

Bruce Dickey has been responsible, more than anyone else, for reviving the cornetto and raising it to the level of a virtuoso solo instrument. Rising star, Czech soprano Hana Blažíková, modeled her own baroque singing style on the sounds and sensuous qualities of Bruce’s playing. Once they began collaborating they realized they were uniquely poised to explore the affinities of the instrument with the voice. The result is “Breathtaking” and PMW is thrilled to present its debut US tour.

Orpheus, the mythical singer, is the symbol of the power of music.

His impassioned singing wins her release, but he is then put to a test at which he, with his impetuous feelings, cannot succeed.
