Never miss another 'The Sixteen' show
Barbican Presents - Handel's Jephtha: The Sixteen
Jephtha leads the Israelites into battle and vows that, if victorious, he will sacrifice whomever he first sees on his return.
Jubilation turns to horror when he is welcomed by his treasured daughter Iphis: her fate is sealed...
Whilst composing Jephtha, Handel was increasingly troubled by his gradual loss of sight: it proved to be his last oratorio.
This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
After 35 years of worldwide performance and recording, The Sixteen is recognised as one of the world's greatest ensembles. Comprising both choir and period-instrument orchestra, The Sixteen's commitment to the music it performs is its greatest distinction.
A reputation for performing early English polyphony, Renaissance masterpieces, Baroque and early Classical music and a diversity of 20th and 21st century music, is drawn from the passions of conductor and founder Harry Christophers CBE.
