Esther & Jonah

Event Phone: (713) 622-7443
Admission Price: Starting from $39.00
Produced in collaboration with Bach Society Houston as part of the 2018 Houston Early Music Festival, this program comprises two concise music dramas from opposite ends of the 18th century: G. F. Handel's Esther (1718) and Samuel Felsted's Jonah (1775). With gorgeous arias and stirring choruses, Handel's first English-language oratorio celebrates an Old Testament heroine's ultimate victory over the forces of evil. Such works provided valuable models for Samuel Felsted, a composer born to an English family in Jamaica in the early 1740s. His concise setting of the story of Jonah and the whale is the first American oratorio.
