The English Concert at Sage Gateshead
- This event has passed.
7 April 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Ahead of their annual concert at Canegie Hall, The English Concert will bring their rendition of Handel’s Semele to the Sage Gateshead.
There’s loving someone who’s out of your league – and then there’s Semele, who’s got her eye on the King of the God’s himself. It cannot end well, but Handel’s 1744 dramatic entertainment tells her story in music of gripping theatricality and colour.
The English Concert are the UK’s leading experts in music of the baroque and classical periods, performing on original instruments, with a style of playing and singing appropriate to the composer or period. They believe this allows them to get to the essential core of the music they are performing.
