Baroque Opera Live presents a semi-staged concert featuring some of Handel's best-loved and less well known arias. Held in Hastings, it is in memory of musician Robert Aldwinckle, who spent the last years of his life here, and worked with local music groups. He had a special love of Handel's music. Robert taught and mentored many young students at the Trinity Laban conservatoire.

Baroque Opera Live is an occasional concert group based in East Sussex, performing vocal music from the baroque era. Soprano Janet Forbes is an early music specialist who trained at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague and recently performed at Handel House. Mezzo-soprano Linda Grace and Tenor Gary Marriott regularly perform to great acclaim in Sussex venues. Bass-baritone Stephen Holloway has worked with ENO, the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne and other prestigious companies.

The Opus Theatre is perhaps one of the finest concert halls in the South East, in a Grade II listed building created for the best natural acoustics. The theatre’s centrepiece is its very special concert grand piano, one of the most technologically advanced instruments in the world, officially baptized as the 'Phoenix Opus'. The beautiful 9ft long Concert Grand Piano was custom built using the latest Phoenix technology including their fantastic carbon-fibre soundboard, fitted to a 1925 Blüthner Style XI acoustic body.

The accompanists for this concert are Julius Weeks (organ), and Duncan Reid (Phoenix Opus grand piano and digital harpsichord).

Profits from the concert will be donated to the Parkinsons Society UK.
