Glyndebourne : Saul - recorded

Details

Barrie Kosky’s extraordinary, award-winning 2015 production of Handel's Saul is bursting with energy and sensation, combining exhilarating contemporary choreography with lavish period costumes. Please note this was recorded in 2015, please ensure this is made clear to customers.

David has vanquished the giant Goliath, but not everyone rejoices in his victory. Jealous of the young warrior, King Saul turns against him, descending into violent, destructive madness that forces his children to choose between loyalty and love, tearing both a family and a nation apart.

Handel’s vision of a Lear-like king is astonishing in its psychological complexity, offering a musical portrait of mental collapse few have since matched. Combined with thrilling choruses that exploit the virtuosic potential of their singers, exquisite arias and bold orchestration filled with unusual instruments, it creates a Biblical drama of truly Shakespearean scope.

Sung in English with English subtitles. Recorded live at Glyndebourne in 2015.
