The Cambridge Chamber Ensemble invites you to its 3rd season with a presentation of G.F. Handel’s Baroque opera
~~Silla~~ Lucio Cornelio Silla, a triumphant Roman general, made short work of his enemies and declared himself Perpetual Dictator of Rome. He set out to quash civic liberties and forced his attentions on the wives and lovers of his subordinates. Not all were willing to bow to his ruthless intent. Handel’s opera drives with passion toward its powerful conclusion.
