Vocal sparks will fly as internationally renowned sopranos Susanna Phillips and Jane Archibald sing music written for the great dueling divas of the Baroque and Classical eras. The rivalries between Francesca Cuzzoni and Faustina Bordoni in Handel's day, and Caterina Cavalieri and Aloysia Lange in Mozart's, come to life in a fascinating program of virtuosic arias and duets.
