Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra Presents "The Queen of Egypt" 

When: Sat., March 15, 8 p.m. and Sun., March 16, 7:30 p.m. 2008
Price: $10-$72

In her last stint with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, singing alongside Patti Lupone, soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian demonstrated how she has developed from a sweet, lyrical singer into a mature artist of great communicative power. On her return visit, she brings all of her lyrical and coloratura skills together to present The Queen of Egypt, a one-of-a-kind program that combines 18th century arias and opera overtures written for the character of Cleopatra by Handel, Graun, Hasse, and Mattheson. Rounding out the program is Quantz' Concerto for Flute in G major No. 161, performed by flautist Janet See. With Nic McGegan at the helm, this should be an especially buoyant evening. On Saturday, March 15 (8 p.m.), and Sunday, March 16 (7:30 p.m.), at First Congregational Church (2345 Channing Wy., Berkeley). $30-$72, $10 for students.415-392-4400
