Messiah: oratorio in three parts, HWV 56, 1742 Cover
Charles Jennens
Martin Pöllmann
Susan Gritton
Cornelia Horak
Bejun Mehta
"Central to the plot is the story of three men, perhaps three brothers, and the family entanglements bound up with their wives and children. One of the men commits suicide, after which the action onstage follows the attempts of the survivors to come to terms with what has happened. The burial is a fixed point and is followed by the events that led up to it and then by the question: "What comes next?" This approach gives concrete expression to a recurrent theme in Messiah: the category of human doubt. The abstract, philosophical layer of the score, the voice of God and the inner voices of the characters are taken by the chorus, which is choreographically involved in the action, as is the aforementioned dancer, who embodies not only the sufferings of Christ but also the life of the suicide victim after he has killed himself. Mention should also be made of a figure described as a "sign language performer", who accompanies the orchestral introduction, for example."--Booklet
