Handel considered Theodora one of his finest creations. This musical and dramatic masterpiece features sumptuous arias, sublime choruses, and brilliant orchestration. Inspired by the fourth-century martyr Theodora, Thomas Morell’s libretto beautifully conveys a story of love, religious persecution, and heroic resolve.
