Four people, sleepless in the dark of the night. Time ticks as a clock on the wall while spreading its wings in secret.

What could Handel know about the passing of time when composing his first oratorio at 22? And yet he knew. The allegory of reformation from short-term pleasure to virtue would become schematic if it were not for Handel's crystal-clear, soaring music. It assigns more to the figures than mere functions in a dispute: they become flesh and blood human beings.

The live performance will be subtitled in English
