Susanna by GF Handel

[blockquote_right] 3 + 4 Feb | 7:30pm | Boys School [/blockquote_right]

Handel’s inspiring work brings to life an ageless tale of corruption, courage and vindication. The story tells of the attempted rape of an innocent woman by two Elders in a close-knit community. Susanna is falsely accused of promiscuity and condemned to death, but the day is saved by the young judge Daniel.

This challenging theme, which has also been vividly reflected in the visual arts, is brilliantly reflected in Handel’s dramatic and sublime music.

Performed by DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama students in the historic surroundings of the Boys School, this event promises to be evening of intense music-drama.
