As the second installment in its provocative and gripping Handel series which began with Messiah in 2007, and will culminate in 2010 with Giulio Cesare, American Opera Theater ends this season with the master’s last great work.
Jephtha explores the furthest reaches of human faith in an explosive score widely considered to be the summation of Handel’s life. In his final days, forced to stop several times due to impeding blindness, Handel composed this ultimate testament to the mysterious relationship between God and man. American Opera Theater is proud to collaborate with the Handel Choir of Baltimore, its own nationally acclaimed baroque orchestra Ignoti Dei, and a dynamic international cast of soloists in this most powerful and human of Handel’s compositions.
