Handel

Belshazzar

 

This year the Pinner Festival Choir and Orchestra will be performing Handel's wonderful oratorio, Belshazzar. Belshazzar was first performed in London in 1745 and tells the story of the fall of Babylon at the hands of the Persians. King Belshazzar was very fond of a good party and during one of his excessive feasts, a mysterious hand writes on the wall the words 'mene, mene, tekel, upharsin'. This is interpreted by the Jewish prophet Daniel as a judgement from God, foretelling the fall of Babylon. The prediction comes true as Babylon is invaded, Belshazzar slain and the victorious Persians pledge to rebuild Jerusalem and allow the Jews to return there. The dramatic story gives Handel a great opportunity for some excellent music, featuring five soloists, orchestra and choir.
