DetailsJephtha, war leader of the Israelites, has triumphed in battle but will God demand a sacrifice in return - the life of the general's beautiful daughter? Handel's inspiration for his intense oratorio Jephtha may have been the Bible, but the work is an involving human drama not a sermon. Sung in English. Approx. running time 3 hours 15 minutes.
