Buxton Festival: Jephtha: Orchestra of the Sixteen, Buxton Festival Chorus
As Jephtha leads the Israelites into battle, he single-mindedly vows to God that if he is victorious he will sacrifice the first creature he meets upon his return. After tasting the glory of conquest, Jephtha's jubilation soon turns to horror, when the first person to welcome him is none other than his beloved daughter, Iphis, whose sickening fate has been sealed...
This meditation on the paradox of life journeys to the very heart of the psychological condition of man's anguish of choice between duty and love.
Libretto by Reverend Thomas Morrell, sung in English, with side-titles
Part of a feast of opera, music and literature, set in the beautiful Peak District.
