About the event
While Saul marks the beginning of Handel's dramatic oratorios, Jephtha forms their conclusion. George Frideric Handel was 66 years old when he composed it, was in poor health, and yet continued to work tirelessly. Jephthah's sense of duty, who almost sacrificed his loved one because he had simply forgotten the less painful way, may not have been alien to him.
