Passion, redemption, sacrifice, and honor - Handel's electrifying oratorio Jephtha tells the story of a warrior willing to sacrifice it all for a chance at glory. For the first time since 1867, the Handel and Haydn Society brings the legend of Jephtha to life, premiered in the US by H&H in 1855. Experience the transformative powers of Handel's music as Harry Christophers leads the H&H Period Instrument Orchestra and Chorus alongside a stellar cast of soloists in this theatrical story on stage at Symphony Hall. Considered one of the finest Handelians in the world, Christophers was educated at the Canterbury Cathedral Choir School and Magdalen College, Oxford. He founded The Sixteen, the choral ensemble with their accompanying instrumental ensemble, in 1977.
