Read more about the opera Belshazzar

Belshazzar is one of the most spectacularly dramatic of Handel's English oratorios, and it is good to see the RSAMD forces taking it on, admittedly only in concert form, not long after they had had some success in tackling Semele.

Cast details are from a programme in the RCS archives.
