Jephtha, 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. A co-production with Welsh National Opera. Running time 3 hours 10 minutes.


Mark Padmore (Jephtha), Sarah Tynan (Iphis), Susan Bickley (Storge), Neal Davies (Zebul), Robin Blaze (Hamor), Sarah-Jane Davies (Angel)
