Notes & Reviews:

Handel composed 'Hercules' for his 1744-45 oratorio season as the secular foil to one of his most ambitious sacred dramas, 'Belshazzar', hoping to repeat the success of the previous season's 'Samson/Semele' pairing. Like 'Semele', 'Hercules', which Handel called 'A Musical Drama', is an English opera in all but name and shares its theme of the destructive power of sexual jealousy. Handel's music is of outstanding quality and the commanding figure of Dejanira - rapturous in her love for her returning hero, distraught at his imagined dalliance with Iole, eventually mad with despair at the enormity of her misguided actions - is one of his most powerfully drawn female roles.
