Saturday 14 November, you can hear Jephtha LIVE on NPO Radio 4. The broadcast starts at 19.00 on NTR Opera Live, and is presented by Hein van Eekert.

Jephtha tells the biblical story of a commander-in-chief who had to sacrifice his daughter because of a rash promise he made to God. In the version by Händel’s librettist Thomas Morell, an angel comes between them at the last moment and the daughter’s life is spared.
