Love, lies, deception, redemption -- the story of Susanna and the Elders may be thousands of years old, but it remains as timely and engrossing as ever. Baroque composer George Frideric Handel's gorgeous 1749 oratorio brings the Old Testament tale of a virtuous woman falsely accused of infidelity to stunning life in a work full of powerful choruses, memorable arias and even a touch of comedy. This Ars Lyrica production features the University of Houston Moores School of Music Concert Chorale and stars soprano Melissa Givens, mezzo-soprano Abigail Levis, tenor Zachary Averyt, baritone Brian Shircliffe and bass-baritone Timothy Jones.
