Premiered in the US by the Handel and Haydn Society in 1855, the Period Instrument Orchestra and Chorus bring a legend to life: the oratorio tells the story of Jephtha, a commander for the Israelites against the Ammonites, and his daughter Iphis, who is betrothed to one of Jephtha’s soldiers,...

    Considered one of the finest Handelians in the world, Harry Christophers brings Jephtha to Symphony Hall audiences for the first time since 1867. Premiered in the US by the Handel and Haydn Society in 1855, the Period Instrument Orchestra and Chorus bring a legend to life: the oratorio tells the story of Jephtha, a commander for the Israelites against the Ammonites, and his daughter Iphis, who is betrothed to one of Jephtha’s soldiers, Hamor. With a stellar cast, Christophers will transform this theatrical story of passions and redemptions, and showcase the transformative powers of Handel’s music.
