“Baroque Opera Live is a new opera company based in Hastings, East Sussex. We were formed in June 2010 to perform the works of Handel, Rameau, Lully, Vivaldi and other composers of the Baroque era.
Baroque music was composed roughly from the time of Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) to that of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). One of its main influences is thought to be Martin Luther, the father of Protestantism, who believed that music could enhance reverence for God and help to spread God’s word.”
