Join Voxalis Opera for a new staged production of Handel's first oratorio, The Triumph of Time and Truth, featuring a stunning cast of baroque singers.
About this performance
Delve into the allegorical journey of Bellezza (symbolizing Beauty) as she embarks on a profound spiritual and psychological odyssey. In this tale, Disinganno (personifying Truth) and Tempo (embodiment of Time) endeavor to illuminate Bellezza's understanding of life's genuine values. Concurrently, Piacere (representing Pleasure) tempts her to his opulent palace of indulgence in a bid to divert her from the teachings of truth and time.
Experience Handel's masterful compositions at their finest in this oratorio, with the enchanting aria Lascia la spina as a standout, showcasing one of opera's most renowned melodies, now known as Lascia ch'io pianga from Rinaldo.
Do not miss this mesmerizing exploration of the human psyche, presented in a staged format, featuring some of Queensland's most accomplished baroque singers. Immerse yourself in the timeless themes and exquisite music of this unique production.
