Behind the Scenes of Xerxes – Period Instruments

Backstage | Handel

Period instruments bring a unique sound to historically informed performances of operas such as Handel's Xerxes. Kristin Linde presents the mellow sounds of the baroque oboe and Andrea Baur plays the long and rich strings of the theorbo.

Watch Xerxes from 1 February 2018 on OperaVision here.
