Jephtha: Welsh National Opera

The offices of state wear heavily on Jephtha's shoulders. He has led his people through war to victory, he is a hero, the man of the hour - but there is a catch, a terrible catch. Before victory, Jephtha vowed that, if he was to win, he would sacrifice the first living creature he encountered on his return. The first person to greet him was his beloved daughter Iphis...

Handel's sublime music and Thomas Morell's exquisite words are infused with almost unbearable pathos. Katie Mitchell's inspired production transforms this oratorio into electrifying theatre which asks profound questions about the clash between individuals and the state. Jephtha is a heart-stopping and poignant experience.

Sung in English with surtitles in English.
