Handel Theodora at St Andrew's Church, Mells.
Come and enjoy Handel's favourite work, Theodora, in the beautiful
surroundings of St Andrew's Church in Mells. Following on from lat year's
sell-out opera, Midsomer Choral returns to Mells to perform this great work.
Theodora (HWV 68) is a dramatic oratorio in three acts by George Frideric
Handel, set to an English libretto by Thomas Morell. The oratorio concerns
the Christian martyr Theodora and her Christian-converted Roman lover,
It had its first performance at Covent Garden Theatre on 16 March 1750.
