This powerful production delves deep into Handel's grand setting of the well-known Biblical tale of the first king of Israel's love and loathing for his eventual successor, David. We watch Saul crumble before our eyes, as dramatically as Shakespeare's King Lear, as he watches David win everyone's heart - including that of his son, Jonathan. Finish time: 21:40 and 20:25. Sung in English with supertitles.

Performers Christopher Purves (Saul - not Aug 6/12/15), Henry Waddington (Saul - Aug 6/12/15), Iestyn Davies (David), Lucy Crowe (Merab), Sophie Bevan (Michal), Paul Appleby (Jonathan), Benjamin Hulett (High Priest), John Graham-Hall (Witch of Endor).
