Handel's Jephtha

  • The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts 800 Bagby Street Houston, TX, 77002 United States

Handel's final masterpiece sets an Old Testament tale about a warrior's foolish promise to God and its terrible consequences. The austere subject matter (from the Book of Judges) becomes pure gold in Handel's hands; his oratorio is full of beautiful melodies, searing choruses, even a surprise ending.

These performances feature a stellar cast of soloists and the award-winning Moores School Concert Chorale from the University of Houston.
