- David Hansen countertenor* *Wigmore Hall Debut
- Academia Montis Regalis
- Alessandro De Marchi conductor, harpsichord
In today’s golden age of countertenors, David Hansen stands out as a gloriously individual, utterly compelling artist. The Australian’s highoctane performances have been acclaimed for their vocal acrobatics and jaw-dropping beauty.
He makes his eagerly awaited Wigmore Hall debut as he explores spectacular arias from Handel’s celebrated Giulio Cesare, Alcina and Serse.
