On Nov. 19, 7:30 p.m., at Universal Preservation Hall, Saratoga Voices is
performing a semi-staged version of Handel’s oratorio, Judas Maccabaeus.
This oratorio, composed in 1746, has become Handel’s most popular oratorio,
second only to The Messiah.
To perform two of the lead roles, Saratoga Voices has engaged the talent of
two internationally renowned vocal artists with strong dramatic experience.
Tenor Thomas Cooley sings the title role of Judas Maccabaeus and baritone
Jesse Blumberg sings the equally heroic role of Simon, the brother of Judas.
