George Frideric Handel and Antonio Vivaldi were privileged to be able to write music for some of the greatest singers of their time, including castrati such as Senesino, Nicolini and Caffarelli. New Trinity Baroque is proud to be able to bring to Atlanta one of the best opera singers of this repertoire today, whose vocal dramatism demonstrates why this music was all the rage in the 18th century.
