Saul

Be part of a dedicated group of supporters that bring this musical feast back to the Glyndebourne stage in 2018.

Barrie Kosky, Australian theatre and opera director, delighted Festival and Tour audiences with his ‘landmark production’ (The Independent) of Saul in 2015, and it makes a welcome return to Glyndebourne in 2018.

The first of Handel’s great English oratorios, Saul melds operatic-style and psychologically probing arias with mighty choruses. Handel conceived this work on a grand scale, with an unusually large orchestra for the time and novel instrumental colours including a carillon, a solo harp, large timpani, extra woodwinds, trombones (rarely found in orchestras at that time), and a virtuosic organ part which he wrote for himself.

The 2018 cast includes: Markus Brück (Saul), Iestyn Davies (David), Allan Clayton (Jonathan), Karina Gauvin (Merab) and Anna Devin (Michal).
