The Baroque Concert 2 is a veritable Handel gala! The British tenor Guy Cutting makes his debut in Ernen with arias from the biblical oratorio Saul and the mini-opera Acis and Galatea. He tells excerpts from the stories of the steadfast Jonathan, who protects his friend David against his father, King Saul; and of the shepherd Acis, who is ready to die for his beloved nymph Galatea.
