Seattle Baroque Orchestra’s opening concert will transport you back to the Baroque era. Experience the drama and excitement of some of history’s most notorious musical rivalries! Concertmaster Rachell Ellen Wong will lead the SBO quartet through a thrilling face-off between Porpora, the rising opera star, and the fiery young Handel; a fierce power struggle between master violinists Leclair and Guignon in the opulent halls of the Paris royal court; and an epic clash between two groundbreaking Venetian stars, Vivaldi and Albinoni. Prepare to be swept away by these legendary musical giants’ passion, talent, and ambition as they battle for supremacy and leave their mark on the world of classical music.
