London Opera Award 2020
HGO’s UK premiere of Cristiano Lidarti’s ‘T’shuat Yisrael al Yedey Ester – The Salvation of Israel by Esther’ (1774), postponed from 2020 thanks to COVID-19 –is now rescheduled for March 2022.
The libretto, in Hebrew, by the Sephardi Rabbi Jacob Saraval, was set by Lidarti, but the oratorio was lost until the manuscript turned up in Cambridge University Library in the 1990s.
