Wigmore Hall has become a favourite venue for Philippe Jaroussky, an intimate stage where the superstar countertenor can communicate his compelling artistry and dare to take vocal risks.

His work with Ensemble Artaserse, showered with recording awards and fivestar reviews, continues with an all-Handel programme fuelled by Baroque ideals of vocal display, the clear and powerful expression of distinct emotions, and the creation of drama through music. The spotlight falls on dazzling arias from such little-known operas as Flavio, a satire on human fantasies, the King Lear-like Siroe, and Tolomeo, a compelling tale of political intrigue, love, lust and revenge.
