19:00 Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno
Oratorio by George Frideric Handel. 200 min (with intermission). Libretto by Benedetto Pamphili. Music Director and Conductor: Philipp Chizhevsky. Stage Director: Konstantin Bogomolov. Sung in Italian. "Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" occupies a special place among Handelís oratorios. It is the first, and already perfect in all details, oratorio of the 22-year-old composer. And it will become the last one. Half a century later, in 1757, blind Handel dictated to his disciple John Christopher Smith a new version of this oratorio renamed The Triumph of Time and Truth, with participation of choir and addition of fragments from some of his early works. The libretto of "Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" was written by Cardinal Benedetto Pamphili, a theologian, philosopher and poet, one of the Roman patrons of Handel. Beauty, Pleasure, Disillusion and Time are personified in his text.
