“Claus Guth, who had already staged the Messiah at the Theater an der Wien in 2009, is exactly the right person to present the oratorio Saul, which dates from this period of upheaval in 1739...This could not go wrong with this highly sensitive director, who always listens precisely to the music. That it would work out so well in such a brilliant way, however, is one of the surprises that make you happy. In Vienna, where Handel is still one of the exotics of music history, there was breathtaking music theatre at its best." -Neue Musikzeitung

“Handel vividly, today, as a mirror of the metamorphoses of power.” -Kurier

“Florian Boesch as Saul is a vocal and acting elemental force, simply an ideal cast.” -Kurier
