Performed by English Touring Opera

Touring Opera (ETO) presents a rare treat – Vivaldi’s beautiful sacred music in the
beautiful setting of St Wilfrid's Church, Harrogate.
ETO soloists and baroque orchestra the Old Street Band join forces with
Harrogate Vocalis this atmospheric concert of music for the celebrated orphan
musicians of the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, where Vivaldi, nicknamed the
'Red Priest', worked for most of his life.
The programme features the Magnificat, whose arias in the original score were
inscribed with the name of the orphan girl intended to perform, the exquisite
Stabat Mater for solo voice and the exuberant Jubilate O Amoeni, an elaboration
of Vivaldi's celebrated Gloria in D major with additional text and arias.
The event will be 90 minutes long.
