For his 1996 Glyndebourne staging, radical American director Peter Sellars takes George Frideric Handel's penultimate English oratorio - a tale of self-sacrificial love between a Christian virgin and a Roman imperial bodyguard in fourth-century, enemy-occupied Antioch - and, by resetting it in modern-day America, transforms it into a timeless parable of spiritual resistance to tyranny and persecution.

A great experience - Theodora: Glyndebourne Festival Opera review by EW

Spoiler Alert

Handel's wonderful and moving music receives an extra dimension by this staging of his oratorio as an opera. Initially the transposition of Imperial Rome into modern America with soldiers in orange jump suits was a shock to the system. However this production is so well done that it carried conviction and proved thought provoking. We found that a second viewing was necessary to make this a fully worthwhile experience. We will be on the lookout to see if other companies stage this as an opera.
