SCARLATTI: La Gloria di Primavera (Southern California premiere)

Commemorating 300 years since the work’s first performance, Nicholas McGegan conducts the Southern California premiere of a recently discovered serenata by Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725), La Gloria di Primavera. Scarlatti, considered one of the great operatic composers of the 18th century, created the allegorical work to celebrate the birth of the heir to the Habsburg empire.
