Peter Sellars returns to direct a dream cast in his acclaimed production of Handel’s timeless and poignant tragedy.
The ancient Greek tragedian Sophocles was also a war general who knew first-hand the devastating psychological traumas that imperilled returning veterans. With Hercules – Handel’s take on Sophocles’ play – Sellars creates a healing work in which the untold horrors of war and the unspoken complications of reunion find their voice.
Performance time is approximately three hours, 15 minutes including one intermission. Sung in English with English SURTITLES™.
