Theodora is Händel's penultimate oratorio, and the composer's favorite. The libretto by Thomas Morell (Judas Maccabeus, Alexander Balus and Jephtha) is set in Antioch during the Roman persecution of Christians, and tells the story of Theodora, who had to face torture, rape and death because of her faith. We live in times of anxiety and uncertainty. And this version is constructed in an attempt to transform the restrictions to which the pandemic forces us into expressive power. Bearing witness to the transforming power of art and imagination in dark times. And expressing, in turn, the profound and indisputable character of art as an essential good.
