Concert: Handel – The Triumph of Time and Truth

From Friday, November 19th, 2021 at 7:00 pm until Sunday, November 21st, 2021 at 4:00 pm

Singers of Southern Tasmania present two performances only of a little known oratorio by G. F. Handel called “The Triumph of Time and Truth.”

Handel’s last oratorio may have never been performed in Australia, and indeed, rarely around the world. The reason is that it has never been published. Nevertheless, it contains all the greatness, fireworks and beauty one expects from Handel’s choral works. Through many hours of transcribing and reconstruction from an old 1865 score, Hobart audiences now have the unique opportunity to hear this remarkable work. If you like The Messiah, you simply can’t afford to miss this!

  • Friday 19th November at 7pm
  • Sunday 21st November at 2pm

Singers of Southern Tasmania will be accompanied by a 21 piece chamber orchestra joined by 5 excellent soloists cast in the following roles:
Beauty – Madeleine Dyer (Soprano)
Pleasure – Christopher Bryg (Tenor)
Deceit – Quin Thomson (Soprano)
Time – Phillip Joughin (Bass)
Counsel – Helena Markovitch
Conducted by Matthew Anning.
