Programme Note
George Frideric Handel Apollo and Daphne
SYNOPSIS

Apollo, while boasting about his slaying of the mighty Python and presuming his superiority over the god of Love, meets the beautiful Daphne who awakes in him a ‘passion all consuming’. Daphne’s attempts to avoid Apollo’s pursuit fails, but as he finally catches her, she is turned into a laurel, which immediately becomes sacred to him for ever. The work dates from Handel’s early years in Italy.
