Biblical

What a treat - two rare operas on Old Testament themes in less than a week, and marvelously performed: Gioachino Rossini's "Moses in Egypt" at City Center - City Opera returning to its original home, doing what it does best. And then Marc-Antoine Charpentier's "David et Jonathas" at BAM, performed by the ever wonderful Les Arts Florissants - queer Christianity in action, stirring and incontestable. Wow: in 1688!
