Read more about the opera Solomon

In recent seasons the SCO and its excellent chorus have steadily been working their way through the great oratorios of Handel. There can be little doubt that the best-known section from Solomon is the 'Symfony' that opens the third act - universally known as The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba. However there is much more superb music here, and it will be good to hear it complete. For most of the decades since 1749 the act containing the episode of the two harlots was either removed altogether or heavily edited, rather limiting the monarch's opportunities to reveal his wisdom.
