Assembling Heads and Circulating Tales: The Doings and Undoings of Specimen 2032

In April 1859, U.S. Army Surgeon Charles Brewer was dispatched to a remote mountain valley in the Utah Territory with orders to oversee the burial of 120 massacre victims. The scattered bones of overland immigrants who had been murdered by Mormon militiamen were gathered and interred in a series of mass graves. Though Brewer reported that his work was complete, he carried away from the site two skulls. One of those crania was recently identified in the collections of the National Museum of Health and Medicine.

Handel's only comic opera is a timeless story of love, deception, mistaken identity and ultimate forgiveness.

It combines delightfully comic situations with heart-wrenching depths of emotion that has much in common with the pairs of "star-crossed" lovers found in many Shakespearean comedies, such as “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

The opera is filled with some of Handel's most beautiful, charming and virtuosic music including one of Handel's greatest "musical hits" — the aria "Ombra Mai Fu," more popularly known as "Handel's Largo.”
