About Handel’s Susanna
The Yorke Trust presents a staged production of Handel’s superb work Susanna, to be performed in St Mary’s Church, South Creake on 14 and 15 July 2017 at 7.1Spm.
This is an exciting new collaboration between local choristers and student musicians with musical direction by Alexander Crowe and Laoise O’Brien. This dramatic tale of lust and corruption is vividly conveyed in Handel’s score. The story tells of the attempted rape of a young woman by two Elders of thec ommunity. Susanna is condemned for her apparent sin, but the day is saved by the young judge Daniel who in an ingenious process of cross questioning, manages to trick the elders into revealing the truth of their crime.
Directed by Jennifer Hamilton, the work will be accompanied in a special arrangement for keyboard, continuo and solo instruments.
