As if in perfect coordination with my lecture on the excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath this evening (see here), tonight, about an hour after my lecture is over, at 20:00 (Israel time), the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra will present a live performance of Allesandro Scarlatti’s oratorio – “Davidis pugna et victoria” (The Battle and Victory of David,” based on the David and Goliath story)!
If you want to watch it live, right after my lecture, see here.
And if before you watch it, you want to know what this oratorio sounds like, check it out below:
Enjoy! (both my lecture, and the music…)
