See times and book tickets

With his velvety, exquisitely expressive voice and his penetrating sense of drama, world-renowned British countertenor Iestyn Davies is at the height of his powers. He’s equally at home in the concert hall, the opera house or the theatre — he recently sang the title role in Farinelli and the King, with Mark Rylance, in the West End and on Broadway.

With Sophie Bevan and Rowan Pierce, Davies performs one of the most powerful love stories in all of opera. Gluck’s deeply moving Orfeo ed Euridice celebrates the power of music to overcome even death, in captivating arias of astonishing directness and potency.

For this concert performance, they are joined by The English Concert, one of the world’s most respected period ensembles, under expert Canadian conductor Bernard Labadie.
