Handel – Jephtha

Nick Pritchard

Nick Pritchard

Handel’s last (and, many say, best) oratorio tells the story of the Israelite general who comes to regret a rash vow made to God. Despite being composed at a time of old age and failing eyesight, it is a work of immense dramatic power and searching character portrayal.

Tickets £45, £35, £25, £15

‘The Holst Singers sing with a spellbinding sense of atmosphere and crystal-clear textures ... supremely musical.’
