Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale

Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale Handel's Judas Maccabaeus

Celebrate the triumph of perseverance and peace over oppressive adversity. Fire up the menorahs this holiday season—the conqu’ring hero comes! PBO favorite, tenor Nicholas Phan, rallies the troops in the title role of Handel’s heroic oratorio, one of the composer’s most enduringly popular works through his lifetime and since. Nic last brought this vital work to life in 1992, and he will conquer it again as only the foremost expert on Handel can! Nobody does Handel’s oratorios like Nic and Philharmonia.
