Georg Friedrich Händel
Jupiter, the father of the gods, falls in love with Semele, the beautiful daughter of the king, just as she falls in love with him. Semele desires nothing more than to experience him in his true form: Only when he shows himself to her in all his divinity does she feel truly equal to him. Jupiter’s jealous spouse, Juno, only adds fuel to the fire of Semele’s ambition—but this leads her to ruin. The mortal Semele has nothing to protect her from Jupiter's searing presence. Semele must perish, while Jupiter goes on…

Georg Friedrich Handel
Premiere
While Saul stands at the beginning of Handel’s dramatic oratorios, Jephtha forms their conclusion. George Frideric Handel was 66 years old at the time of composition, in failing health, and yet continued to work tirelessly. Jeptha—who almost sacrifices his beloved, simply because he has forgotten how not to suffer—displays a sense of duty that might have been familiar to him.

The dramatic oratorio Saul, by George Friedrich Händel, was written within a few weeks, despite his deep psychological and financial crisis at the time. The oratorio is rarely performed with staging in Germany—the same is true of Semele, his other dramatic oratorio—and this large-scale staging will be directed by the Berlin opera and film director Axel Ranisch.
