20 October 2017 at 7.30pm at St John the Evangelist, Bath
Bath Choral Society presents a semi-staged concert performance developed from the recent opera production by Iford Arts. The soloists are Iford principals: tenor Mark Bonney as Jephtha and countertenor Ben Williamson as Hamor; and Iford Arts New Generation Artists: Jessica Leary as Iphis, Lucy McAuley as Storge, and Peter Brooke as Zebul.
David Gostick will direct the choir, soloists, and the Bristol Ensemble.
Jephtha is Handel’s final oratorio before blindness claimed him. It tells a dramatic story from The Book of Judges.
The performance will be a shortened version lasting approximately two hours.
