Glyndebourne Festival: Saul (Recorded)

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Following the huge success of Saul in 2015 we are screening this highly acclaimed production in selected cinemas to meet popular demand.

With a musical score of heart-breaking beauty and intensity, Saul takes us into a nightmare world of madness and despair.

This powerful and highly acclaimed production, filmed live in Festival 2015, delves deep into Handel’s grand setting of the well-known Biblical tale of the first King of Israel’s love and loathing for his eventual successor, David.

We watch Saul crumble before our eyes, as dramatically as Shakespeare’s King Lear, as he watches David win everyone’s heart – including that of his son, Jonathan.
