Love and Betrayal, Baroque style, are on the menu when the Theatre of Early Music makes its Penn State debut in a program of opera arias and duets by George Frideric Handel at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in Schwab Auditorium.

Canada's Daniel Taylor, countertenor and Theatre of Early Music artistic director, and England's Deborah York, soprano, are the featured vocalists backed by seven instrumentalists.

The program features emotionally charged selections from Handel's Giulio Cesare, Rodelinda, Xerses, Rinaldo and Tolomeo. The chamber orchestra includes two violins, viola, cello, harpsichord, double bass and lute.

One hour before the concert, Taylor speaks at Artistic Viewpoints in Schwab. Artistic Viewpoints, an informal conversation with an artist, is free for ticket holders.

Tickets are available for the concert.
