Audio will be available later today.

We hear Handel's Overture to The Triumph of Time and Truth, played by the Orchestra La Scintillia of Zurich Opera. They're in concert in Boston. Then the dazzling mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli performs an aria from an oratorio by Baroque composer Antonio Caldara, called "The Triumph of Chastity."
