A Celebration of Handel The music of George Frideric Handel and his extraordinary life story are brought to life in this magnificent musical drama at Melbourne Arts Centre on Saturday 16 August 2008. Experience this musical spectacular and observe as, live on stage, the great 18th century composer - played by actor Peter Whitford in full period dress - faces a 21st century interview with Mary Kostakidis as interlocutor. Over 350 singers and musicians, including soloists from Opera Australia, interlace the dialogue with some of Handel’s most beloved compositions. Other cast members include Tiffany Speight and Paul McMahon. The concert also features the Orchestra Victoria, conducted by Graham Abbott, and an impressive array of school choirs who will perform at this event.
