Harry Bicket returns to the United States this week, to continue a tour of Handel’s Semele with The English Concert. Joined by Askonas Holt tenor Benjamin Hulett as Jupiter and Brenda Rae in the title role, performances take place in New York, Philadelphia, Ann Arbor and Dartmouth, following those already taken place at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Sage Gateshead and Barbican Centre.
“It was quite a simply an evening of delightfully and unwaveringly engaging theatre and a terrific musical treat.”
