Sibling and romantic rivalry are at play in the court of Persia where King Xerxes and his brother vie for power and affection in this comic masterpiece. Xerxes plans to marry Romilda, but his brother is also in love with her. When a former fiancée vows revenge, entertaining complications abound, all set to Handel’s Baroque musical magic. Metropolitan Opera director Dan Rigazzi, who staged the company’s sold-out production of Handel’s Julius Caesar in 2016, returns with his acclaimed stars Andrey Nemzer, Met countertenor, in the title role, and Lara Lynn McGill as Romilda. Pittsburgh’s celebrated Chatham Baroque ensemble is again under the baton of conductor Walter Morales.

Celebrate with the cast members at the Opening Night Party immediately following the performance on Friday 14 July.
