    Judas Maccabæus, HWV 63

    A tenth-year anniversary performance! One of Handel’s most popular oratorios (after Messiah), Judas Maccabæus was first performed by the Ama Deus Ensemble in 2009 to a sold-out Kimmel Center audience and was recorded live on CD. Full of rousing choruses, ravishing duets, and fiery arias, it recounts the successful second-century B.C. revolt by the Jewish people, led by Judas Maccabæus, fighting fiercely and heroically to prevent their religion from being destroyed by their Seleucid overlords. Featuring stellar soloists in a dynamic concert version. A thrilling and fascinating conclusion to our exciting Season 32!

    This program is supported by the CHG Charitable Trust and in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
